Longtime Fair Lawn dental practice joins the Chamber of Commerce.
A Saddle River Road dental practice that has had offices in Fair Lawn for over 50 years, but only recently joined the Fair Lawn Chamber of Commerce, celebrated its grand opening Monday.

Friday, February 22
Fair Lawn business owners should be on the lookout for fire suppression system companies and fire extinguisher inspection companies posing as conduits of the borough. Fire Marshal Jay Bender said he's seen a sharp increase in the number of companies fraudulently representing themselves as having been borough-sent to inspect equipment. "There's an awful lot of walking in the door -- either implying or out-and-out saying that they're from the fire marshal's office here to do a billable inspection," fireman and local business owner Jack Donohue told other business owners at Tuesday's Chamber of Commerce meeting. In some cases, companies will imply that if business owners don't hire them to inspect and update their fire suppression equipment, …
