FANWOOD, NJ  - At Tuesday night’s Fanwood Borough Council meeting the council honored volunteer firefighter Bob Brennan for his 34 years of service with the Fanwood Fire Department.

Brennan and his wife live on Watson Road, just across the street from the Fanwood Firehouse. He joined as a volunteer in 1979 when the old firehouse was literally right next door to their home.

Councilman Tony Parenti found the fact that the fire alarm was just outside the Brennan’s bedroom window amusing, as he was sharing stories about Brennan’s 34 years as a volunteer Firefighter.

Brennan thanked his fire department colleagues, many of whom attended the council meeting, saying they were the reason he enjoyed his 34 years as a volunteer.
