On Wednesday, April 19th the Indian River Volunteer Fire Company was notified of a vehicle accident on Long Neck Road in the vicinity of Ridgewood Road.  This was the result of an automatic crash notification process. Additional emergency alerts included the Mid Sussex Rescue Squad.

Emergency response units from Indian River included Tanker 80 from the Oak Orchard facility and Engine #80-1 from the Long Neck facility as well as the Delaware State Fire Police.
