Paramus Rescue Squad operates a converted military generator set for numerous types of calls in the Borough of Paramus. We have found this equipment useful at fire scenes and arson investigations, motor vehicle accident investigation, and lighting details. The versatility of this type of equipment is that it is self-supporting, can be moved easily, and does not require manpower to monitor once set up.

This unit has two (2) 5 kW diesel generators and a commercial grade light tower with four (4) one million candlepower lights. The light tower is raised into position by manually operated winches, and can be moved by any vehicle with a pindle hook set up.

Paramus Rescue offers this unit to Central Bergen Mutual Aid, and would like other towns within Bergen County to know of its availability.

Unit can be requested thru Paramus Police Dispatch for emergency calls. Upon request, Paramus Rescue will bring the light tower to the scene, and arrangements can be made at that time with the incident commander to return unit to Paramus or have the unit retrieved after the incident is over. For further information or to set up a demonstration of the unit please contact Chief John Pecoraro at 201-262-3400, extension 699.
