A Firefighter Farewell - A Tribute to Passaic Fallen FF Israel Tolentino Jr.

The 124th Annual NJ FMBA Convention ended this week and although it was a convention unlike any other for many obvious reasons, the NJ FMBA gave a final farewell to one of its fallen firefighters. Members of the NJ FMBA and family members and friends gathered under a tent in a socially distanced environment at Harrah's Resort on Tuesday evening to pay tribute to Passaic FF Israel Tolentino, who was lost in the line of duty earlier this year to COVID-19. 


Memorial Service Forms Reminder

The NJ FMBA Annual September Convention is approaching fast and we wanted to remind everyone to send in their Memorial Service Form in as soon as possible for the Memorial Ceremony which will be taking place on Tuesday, September 15th. 

In addition to members of your local who have passed (LINE OF DUTY, ACTIVE OR RETIRED) away between September 2019 and September 2020, we will also be remembering NJ FMBA family members who have passed away due to COVID-19 related complications.

2020 NJ FMBA Fallen Heroes 5K Race to be held virtually

This year marks our 18th annual race, and it has been challenging and uncertain year for us all. We have been closely monitoring the situation and holding out hope that we would be able to see you all in person on September 12th, but unfortunately, due to the current situation and factors beyond our control, we will be holding the race virtually this year. Your race registration will ensure you our commemorative NJFMBA Fallen Heroes 5k race shirt, multiple chances to win prizes, and most importantly will support the various charities we support including Team Shamrock, our newest recipient.
