5.9.4 Resources

  1. Stage Resources Out of the Incident Zone – “Once the motorists nearest the scene were evacuated, emergency response and road maintenance equipment were on standby and ready for action as needed. Maryland State Highway Administration personnel ensured that ambulances, tow trucks, salt and sand equipment, and machinery to repair pavement were staged out of the way but within easy access to the site. At about 7 p.m., the fire units informed the Maryland State Police that two of the four lanes of southbound I-95 could be reopened.”
