BNL Fire-Rescue Crew Responds to LIE Pile-up

BNL Fire-Rescue crew

On December 19, 2012, BNL fire-rescue crew members responded to a call for assistance at a multi-vehicle accident from the Chief of the Ridge Fire Department. Because of the Lab's proximity to the accident site on the Long Island Expressway the BNL crew was among the first to arrive at the scene. With over 30 vehicles involved and two cars on fire, the BNL crew immediately started a search for trapped victims. The BNL firefighters extricated one person using the "jaws of life" and helped extinguish the fires.
