The Orangeburg Volunteers were called to Aluf Plastics a little after 11 PM on Thursday, September 22, 2011. An eighteen wheeler making a delivery misjudged a guardrail and sliced open the fuel tank. Unfortunately the driver had just filled the tank in Connecticut. First fire apparatus on the scene was the 11-2000 and it's crew applied speedy dry and adsorbent pads to prevent the diesel fuel from entering the storm drains. While the crew was handling this function Chief Chris Jackson called for the County's Hazardous Material Team to the scene. Approximately two hours later the scene was secured and turned over to the Orangetown Police who waited for the Spill Contractor to clean the site.
