Mass Decontamination
The radio crackles: "There has been a contamination of unknown substance at ...." 
Office building, factory or stadium -- regional first responders are trained to handle the decontamination of large numbers of people.

Carlstadt, Hasbrouck Heights, Little Ferry, Moonachie, Wallington and Wood-Ridge Fire Departments  participated in this hands-on mass decontamination exercise. The training was held on August 22, 2004 at a Route 46 office complex parking lot  in Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. Classroom instruction preceded this drill.  This course is given to every fire department in Northern New Jersey and with this common training -- all departments can mobilize in highly-coordinated, scalable efforts.

"Jaws of Life" Training
During emergencies, when a few wasted seconds can cost lives, the "Jaws of Life" are brought in to pry open accident vehicles and allow rescue workers to remove trapped victims from the wreckage.  We often read about rescues that used the "Jaws of Life".
What is it?  How does it work?

Under a blazing hot (85 degrees) Sunday afternoon, July 11, 2004, the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department conducted "Jaws of Life" training at the DPW yard.  Two donated vehicles were used in the exercise that practiced the basic techniques that are regularly used by the department.

1. Story and equipment
2. Blue car: Removing front doors
3. Blue car: Removing rear doors
4. Blue car: Removing glass, roof, breaking frame & opening hood
5. Yellow truck: Removing doors
6. Yellow truck: Removing glass and roof
7. Yellow truck: Extracting victim
