Rehab 13 was requested and dispatched to Station 906 at 2130 hrs. the Niagara Fire Company last night in Burlington City to provide food and liquid support to firefighters and other 1st Responders that were involved since 1730 hrs. removing stalled vehicles from the roadway. The front that passed through last night became stationary over the area and dumped over 5 inches of rain in the in a short period of time. Since Burlington City is right on the Delaware River the storm drains could not handle the volume of rain water runoff and the streets in the area were under water, many up to past the door on most of the vehicles. Route 130 was closed for a while in both directions until the vehicles were removed and the high water receded.
Rehab 13 responded with 7 personnel and two apparatus and provided cold and hot liquids, hot food and snack foods, a rest room and other support to the personnel engaged in removing people and cars from the high water at Route 130 and High Street. Rehab 13 set-up in the parking lot of Station 906 and operated for over two hours on the scene.
Rehab 13 was released at 2332 hrs. and returned to station to re-supply and was ready for service at 0050 hrs.
