The West Milford VFD was charted back in 1948. The department started with just a one stall garage, and has grown for a large department with many pieces of equipment, including a new rescue truck.
Chief John Elko has been with the department for 30 years. Elko has seen quite a bit in his tenure with the department, the most unusual call being a lizard caught in a tree. Elko, along with other members, now have children that belong to the department.
The VFD has the largest coverage area of any department in the county.
