BLOOMFIELD, NJ-- On Saturday morning members of the Bloomfield Fire Department prepared a buffet breakfast for residents of Heritage Village for an early Mother's Day celebration.  

The firefighters set up and cooked eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage and hash browns on premises.  Approximately 30 residents dined with the firefighters and exchanged stories during the meal.

"It's a great feeling to be able to give back to the community we serve.  We like to look for ways for the fire department to get out and meet local residents in a non emergency situation" said Jeff DeJessie, vice president of FMBA Local 19.
