The Fire Department was one of the first community organizations formed. A fire in 1905 destroyed 24 outbuildings on the Ewing Estate (now Franklin Lakes). Several residents decided that the town must have a fire department. Early founders were Charles Parmley, Daniel DePew, Valentine Goetz, James Winters, and the Reverand Strohauer. Today, there is still a great sense of volunteerism in Wyckoff.
Even though Wyckoff grew slowly in the early years, the post-World War II period demonstrated growth that added many nicely designed housing developments and single-family homes that seem to have filled every open space. The town today is a mature suburban area.
The Memorial Day Parade is an important townwide event that is held every year. Spring Lake and the YMCA continue to be a source of activity for the town.
