On October 6th, Budd Lake Fire Dept. was dispatched to Interstate Route# 80 for a multi-car MVA.
Before they arrived, State Police were requesting a helicopter for a trauma alert. Command requested four more BLS and an additional ALS unit to respond.
Flanders, Budd Lake and Atlantic EMS responded to this incident. The highway was shut down for hours and backed up over five miles westbound. One patient was flown to a local trauma center and three went by ground.
