The Hoboken Fire Department readies for waterfront concerns Marine division to join new task force

Hudson Reporter: "Now that the Bayonne Bridge is lifted we will be seeing a lot more and larger container vessels in the next couple of months,” said Crimmins. “With that you get increased traffic, potential for more debris in the river, possible oil spills, or blockage of the Hudson River. We don’t expect any of this to ever happen, but through this training and work with the task force we are prepared to handle any number of these situations. We are interested in keeping the water as safe as possible."
