On this date 15 years ago our current Chief and an EMT from South Plainfield EMS were part of an EMS strike team sent from Middlesex County to assist our brothers and sisters with victims. Very few people know or remember that we were one of the very first strike teams sent. We first reported to the Middlesex County Fire Academy from there we were sent to Liberty State Park where we were the first units to arrive, from there we went to Hoboken and were assigned to the ferry terminal. After hours we were released and returned home safely. GOOD BLESS AMERICA AND ALL OF THE FAMILIES that lost someone that day.
