There is a category for Firefighters that would like to run in their turn out gear.  Several

Come out and support the Volunteers of Whippany Fire that are there for us 24/7/365.  They have at times had to put their life on hold to answer an emergency call for the residences or business in Whippany.  The hope is you never need the services of these dedicated volunteers, but it’s nice to know they are there to answer the call.  So as residences or business of Hanover lets support them by either running, sponsoring, or inviting a friend to join in this great event.  You do not have to be a Town resident to partake in the fun.
