NJ Firefighters Raise Money for Burn Center

Jersey City firefighters placed first in annual ski and snowboard races this month to raise funds for the Burn Center at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston.

In all, 37 teams of professional and volunteer firefighters came out on Friday, Feb. 9, to the 31st annual event, which is now held at Mountain Creek Ski Resort.

“We expect to raise about $6,000 for the burn center,” said Mark Ellerson, president of the New Jersey Firefighters Races and a retired Jersey City firefighter who now lives in Cream Ridge in central New Jersey.

In fact, the entire organizing committee consists of current or retired Jersey City firefighters, he said, naming Henry Matak (retired), Paul Schaetzle of the Gong Club, Tony Lemanski (retired), Glenn Ellerson (retired),Todd Tarrant, Brett Paladino, and John Austin (retired).

The event is hosted by the Jersey City firefighters union, Local 1066, and fire officers union, Local 1064.
