October 8, 2023

It is with great sadness that the Valhalla Fire Department announces the passing of Ex-Chief/Ex-Commissioner Sylvester Teclaw. Syl was a 70+ year member of the department. Working his way up the ranks of the Valhalla Fire Company #1, Syl became Chief of the Department in 1970. After his term as Chief, Syl continued to be an active member of the department. The entire department sends their thoughts and prayers to the Teclaw family.
