Early in the afternoon of Monday April 20th, Ranger 28 was requested into Hopewell Township, Mercer County, to assist with an ongoing land and water search for a missing person.  Brush/Ranger 28, Van 28 and Car 282 responded along with other Somerset County resources from Flagtown Fire (Station36) and Rocky Hill FAS (53 Rescue).  The Somerset County crews were placed in staging and formed a Task Force of off road rescue vehicles.  Crews stood by to provide RIC type resources for the crews working in the field.  All Somerset County resources were released by approximately 5:30pm and returned to service.  On a side note, the lost person was located by the Mercer County Officials later that evening.
