Community Volunteer ​Fire Company #1


Extrication Franklin Blvd

LIVINGSTON, NJ - The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center presented Assistant Chief Vincent Inzano of Community Fire & Rescue Department #1 with a Special Recognition Award during the 31th Annual Valor Awards held on October 25, 2018.

Last December, Assistant Chief Inzano was on his way home when he noticed a significant amount of smoke that turned out to be a house on fire. He immediately pulled over and started banging on doors, notifying occupants to evacuate.  Chief Inzano then began containment of the fire with an extinguisher until responding companies arrived. 

Because of his quick actions, the fire was contained and there was no loss of life at this incident. His actions demonstrate that firefighters are always on duty.

Each year, The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas, New Jersey’s only certified burn treatment facility, recognizes firefighters, policemen, and additional health care professionals from throughout New Jersey for their heroic endeavors on and off the line of duty. Honorees are nominated by respective departments and selected by a committee of peers.

The Burn Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, the only state-certified burn treatment facility in New Jersey, is equipped to treat pediatric through geriatric burn patients with a full range of specialized services, including a dedicated outpatient department where individuals with small or minor burns receive treatment and discharged patients return for follow-up care.
