OLD BRIDGE, N.J. — The New Jersey EMS Task Force recently set up an emergency response exercise area for a training drill that runs through the weekend.

The task force has also been educating the community about their planned exercise, letting local followers on social media know that all the emergency vehicles and equipment in the parking lot at Hackensack Meridian Health Old Bridge Medical Center is part of a preparation drill in the event a major disaster makes the hospital unusable.
