I can kick myself Erie County Haz-Mat has been trying to get me to join for the last 2 years and I have not. It is so hard being a firefighter and not being involved in helping when I have been asked to join this particular aspect of firefighting. I feel like I have failed my community in my civic duties. ):

Deaths now 50, there was a Colgan Air employee hopping a ride.

Another persons flight was late into Newark so he missed his connecting flight 3407.

MORE INFO

Both the Erie County Haz-Mat and the Brighton FC Haz-Mat responded to the scene. The idea and concern was for any jet fuel burning or not burning getting into the water and sewer systems, and water table. They got on location and were not needed apparently because all the fuel was burning and contained.
