Here are some photos taken on Sept.7th, 2006 at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ. They are of the brand new RESCUE-1 Rescue trucks that are part of the Urban Area Security Initiative [UASI] for the Cities of Newark and Jersey City, and the Counties of Hudson, Essex, Bergen, Morris, Union & Passaic. This newly formed Metro USAR Strike Team consists of 9 Fire Departments and nearly 360 members and will be part of NJ Task Force One. It came about after 31 months of planning & training.

All of my photos from that day can be viewwed here:
