Being a member of a haz-mat team is just what the title implies: hazardous duty. Added to the job is maneuvering a large tractor-drawn haz-mat rig around the narrow and congested streets of Jersey City and Hudson County. Jersey City firefighters moved their rig back into a driveway for a "K" style turn on a tight portion of Tonnelle Avenue, after being released, and leaving a fire scene in North Bergen, Feb. 16th.
