On the evening of September 8th, 2006, North Hudson fire captains were relieved from duty in order for them to attend the civil service battalion chief's test in the morning. Firefighter Vincent Neglia was detailed from Engine Co. 13, in upper North Bergen, to Squad Co. 2, in lower Union City. Overnight, he rode the seat of Squad 2 from the 16th Street firehouse, on his last run. FF Neglia gave his life in the Line-of-Duty while operating with one of the first arriving companies at a fire on Bergenline Avenue. At noon, on September 9th, 2023, members of 16th Street firehouse line up, along with firefighters at all regional firehouses, as the 2nd Battalion Chief remembered FF Neglia and his sacrifice over the house speakers.
