This article is a direct street report from our correspondent and has not been edited by the 1st Responder newsroom.

48-year-old Lodi Fire Department member and ex-Chief, Anthony M. Maiolo, is a 24-year volunteer fireman for the Borough of Lodi in Bergen County, NJ. He is a diabetic/amputee suffering from end stage renal kidney failure, and is in need of a kidney transplant. Anthony is currently registered at three hospitals for the transplant; St. Barnabas Hospital in Livingston, Mt. Sinai in New York, and Hackensack University Hospital in Hackensack.

Anthony has proudly served his community for the past 24 years in many different roles, from Lieutenant, to Captain, to Assistant Chief, and then Chief of the Department in 2011. He is currently the department secretary and his company’s secretary, and also sits on the Bergen County Fire Academy Advisory Board, all while still actively responding to calls.

Anthony’s twin children have both followed in his footsteps becoming volunteers. His son, Anthony Joseph, is rejoining the Lodi Fire Department to fight fires with his dad, and his daughter, Selena, rides EMS with the Moonachie First Aid Squad.

Anthony just wants the chance to be able to continue doing what he does as a volunteer firefighter and as a father. He wants to be around for his family, who was recently blessed with the birth of his nephew, Joseph Domenic. Anthony really enjoys the time he gets to spend with Joseph.

Please help Anthony by considering a kidney donation. If interested, you can contact Hackensack University Medical Center’s transplant department at 551-996-2608, or St. Barnabas at 973-332-5000.

Let’s help someone who has spent his life helping others.
