From:             Fire Chief Brian Goss                         
Date:               September 10, 2014
Subject:          Press Release:  Hazardous Materials Incident near Moores Lane

At approximately 5:20 p.m. yesterday, September 9th, the Brentwood Fire & Rescue Department responded to a 911 call at the intersection of Crockett Trail and Moores Lane.  The caller stated that she and her children had been exposed to a potentially hazardous substance in Murfreesboro a short time earlier and were now experiencing headaches and nausea.  The caller did not know the nature of the substance, only that they had been evacuated from the Rutherford County Judicial Building due to a “strange odor.”

Fire & rescue personnel responded along with a representative from the Williamson Emergency Management Agency.  Upon arrival, crews treated the scene as a hazardous materials incident given the potential for contamination.  The patient, along with two small children, were evaluated, decontaminated, and placed in an ambulance for transport.  The occupant’s vehicle was sealed and transported to Brentwood’s impound lot for safe storage pending identification of the hazard.  After a thorough exam, the patients were released later in the evening.

Brentwood Fire & Rescue, Brentwood Police Department, and Williamson EMA remained in contact with Rutherford EMA throughout the incident for the exchange of real-time information.  Ultimately no evidence of dangerous materials was found at the court house and the facility reopened for regular business at 7:30 this morning.  The source of the odor remains undetermined.
