 The Wyckoff Fire Department is now on the cutting edge of firefighting technology, thanks to three enterprising young inventors.

High school sophomores Francesco “Cesco” Ferrara, Ben Lin and Drew Cochran recently donated a drone with a carbon monoxide sensor to the fire department, believed to be the first volunteer force in Bergen County with the equipment. The students began the project as eighth-graders in the Wyckoff Extended Learning program at Eisenhower Middle School.
