Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Salisbury Fire Department Station 2 was alerted for a reported MVC on the bypass at approximately 0900 hours. Truck 2 arrived on location with a two vehicle MVC; the saddle tank on a SHA dump truck that had been damaged was leaking fuel. Due to the active leak and the amount of fuel on the ground, Command requested Special Ops Haz Mat Team from Salisbury and Emergency Manangement. The crew of Truck 2 assisted PM2 with patient care and used absorbent to help contain and dammed around the leak. Haz Mat 1 arrived on scene and techs went to work plugging the leak in the saddle tank. Crews remained on scene for some time for clean-up. State Highway, Salisbury Public Works and MSP all responded to the scene. Situation left to MSP; units returned without incident. Photo by: Billy Adkins
