ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. -- The state is providing 19 trailers equipped with a firefighting foam to fire departments across the state, including in Rockland, to help them fight fires or contain crude oil spills, according to lohud.com.
The trailers will be deployed to fire departments in Binghamton, Elmira, Oneonta, Rochester and Rockland County, and should be ready for use early next year, lohud.com said.
