BLS 4355 responded to this rollover accident in Andover Borough late this afternoon.Rt 206 is open now expect cones and trucks in the area til repairs are made!
Now for the RANT to the drivers that were so upset their travel plans got disrupted & were so disrespectful to the firefighters & NJ Dot workers that had the Rd closed & to the ones that drove through the cones. They are there for OUR safety. Our members & responders working on scene SAFETY comes before anything. So next time your pissed off b/c you had to wait or had to take a detour Thank the responders on scene & pray for the people involved. If not come look for the short female in the white hat if you have a problem!!!!

This evening marked the end of an era as we said goodbye to our 2006 rescue truck. She is off to a great home in Geary, Oklahoma to proudly serve the Mid-West. Over the last several years, the field of emergency services has seen the need to adapt with the times; very few EMS agencies are still running full rescue trucks these days with the onset of most fire companies having one or more and the depletion of available volunteers. Duplicative services has become a common sign of waste and the unnecessary need to hold on to times gone by. Don’t get us wrong, we will miss this old girl, but know that we are a leaner, more efficient agency without a truck sitting idle as a wasted resource. (Note that out rehab services continue and are self-contained on the Special Services Unit.) ...
