Budd Lake Firefighters Assist In Operation Red Zone

Posted on April 2, 2011

On March 19th 2011 the Meadowlands stadium in East Rutherford NJ was turned into a large scale Police, EMS and Fire Department decontamination drill for the Bergen County mutual aid groups with help from Morris County, Union, Essex and other special units from across New Jersey and the city of New York. The drill was run by F.E.M.A. and involved a large-scale bomb scenario with over 1,000 victims being deconed and treated by EMS. It was a very impressive display of Emergency equipment. Budd Lake assisted the Morris County task force with setting up a decontamination line for victims of a terrorist attack. Budd Lake, Roxbury, Schoolyes Mountain, Fairmont, Brookside and Netcong Fire Departments made up the task force.
