On Tuesday, March 24th, the volunteers were called to Convent Road and First Avenue for an automobile accident with a fuel leak.  Upon arriving on the scene Captain John Ahlf advised of a two vehicle accident involving a passenger vehicle and a garbage truck.  The fuel tank on the garbage truck was leaking diesel fuel.
 
The volunteers contained the diesel fuel before entering a storm drain and Casleton out of West Nyack came for the clean up.  The Rockland County Hazardous Material Team came and removed the remaining diesel fuel in the saddle tank of the garbage truck.
