HazMat 2014

The Mount Bethel Fire Company responded to a reported fuel leak from a vehicle last week. Upon arrival fire units confirmed the leak and requested Somerset County HazMat for assistance. The fire department worked to contain the leaking fuel as shown in the picture using ”portable containment pools”. The Somerset County HazMat team assisted with the mitigation of small amount of fuel in the storm drain system.
The owner of the vehicle arrived with a tow company and secured the leak and towed the vehicle in for service.
