The Borough of Fanwood: Life After the Storm

The Borough of Fanwood releases a post-storm update and a look at moving forward.

The following information was provided by the Borough of Fanwood.

While we endured power outages that lasted 12 days in some cases, we are fortunate in Fanwood that all our homes are still standing, though a number sustained damage caused by falling trees. There is still evidence of the many downed trees and wires around the Borough. Our Department of Public Works continues to clear brush, branches and leaves. Story and photos

How can we get the cleanup started? On Paterson Road, there's a pole in pieces, over the sidewalk with power lines too.
