Scott Emerson, 34, of Fair Lawn.
The 8-year department veteran may have suffered an infection following recent surgery, friends said. The Fair Lawn High School graduate, who played and coached football, retired in July after sustaining several injuries in a crash while en route to an overdose call. RIP Ofc. Emerson the men and women of the Saddle River FD would like to offer our condolences to Scott’s family, friends, and colleagues.
