Illegal Dumping Draws HazMat Response

At approximately 09:45 this morning, The Manitou Park Fire Company was dispatched along with Berkeley Hazmat Station 85Pinewald Pioneer FireCo. and South Toms River EMS to a report of a Hazmat situation in theManitouPark section of Berkeley Twp.

Upon arrival it was determined that there were approximately 5 barrels with an unknown liquid substance present.

The Berkeley Twp. Hazmat team investigated and deemed the liquid in the barrels safe.

This is to serve as a reminder that dumping of ANY KIND is illegal but especially chemicals and combustibles that can harm the environment.

If you suspect someone of illegal dumping you can call 1-877-WARNDEP or your local police department Non-Emergency line.
