Teaneck Box 54's 50thAnniversary

The firefighters only ask for us when it's really needed,
We respond when the emergency crews get overheated.
The desk dispatches Field Units one, two three and sometimes four,
When the troops are so tired, they can barely walk out the door.
Sure we've struggle at times, there've even been rumors of giving up,
But no matter how bad it gets there is always a crew to fill those cups.
You can see us at parades, funerals and even the occasional wetdown,
However the most important time is when we are responding to a fireground.
Tonight we finally raise our glasses for a much deserved toast,
To the members of Box 54 for a half a century have always manned their post!
