FORT DIX, N.J. — While most people were fleeing the east coast in preparation for the landfall of Hurricane Sandy Monday, six Buck Creek Township fire department employees were heading straight toward it.
Three EMTs and three paramedics were deployed to Fort Dix, N.J., Sunday night to assist the Federal Emergency Management Agency with response to what forecasters are calling “the perfect storm.”
The fire department’s call to aid potential victims of Sandy came at 10 p.m. Sunday. An hour later, three ambulances carrying the three two-man teams were on the road with a plan to drive all night to beat the storm’s landfall somewhere in the New Jersey vicinity.
