NEW MILFORD FD PARTICIPATES IN MASS CASUALTY DRILL

Posted on September 26, 2010

On Sunday, September 26th The New Milford Fire Department participated in a mock drill to test the response of multiple agencies to a mass casualty incident. Hosted by the New Milford Volunteer Ambulance Corps, the drill simulated a train derailment with over 40 victims. The NMFD Hazardous Materials Team mitigated a chemical leak while Engine 33 and additional manpower provided logistical support to the incident. Drills of these types help to foster a better working relationship between area towns and the multiple disciplines of the emergency services.
