I don't have any Middlesex county freq's programed in right now, so hearing this on Union County.

Elizabeth NJ FD took an engine out of service and put the firefighters on 2 Elizabeth ambulances and sent them to Route 1 in Edison. Not sure of exact location but Depty-2 said take turnpike to Edison exit and the accident is a couple hundred feet or yards from exit on Route 1.
Heard it was a School Bus accident with at least 30 injured.
I belive the county is also trying to get the county ambulance manned also. Cen-Com is relaying the info to all Union county ambulances on UCMA-EMS1 freq. Edison is using J.E.M.S.-4.

Update, 12 are enroute to Robert Wood Hospital, 11 or so more still waiting for more ambulances.
Also It might be JEMS-1 but also the "On-Scene" people are using SPEN-4.

Cencom, MedCentral, and Union County OEM were all being patched into SPEN4 (which is the same as JEMS4). Took a while to get it to work, but it did. MedCentral Ops channel was also in use. The remaining 11 were taken to St. Peter's University Hospital ED in New Brunswick.

I believe Union County and Monmouth County sent the NJEMS TASK FORCE EMS transport buses. There was 30 green tag(walking or minor injuries). I believe someone called our EMS desk to advise them the one unit located at Shark River Hills First Aid Squad in Neptune was responding out of county.
