Budd Lake & Flanders Drill

Firefighters from several towns converged on Flanders Sunday for a training exercise in three buildings that are scheduled to be demolished. The Country Barn, a furniture store that operated for many years in a converted barn on Flanders-Bartley Road, and two houses on either side of it will be demolished within the next couple of weeks to make way for an expansion of Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics. The company allowed area firefighters and emergency medical personnel to practice the techniques they use during fires and other emergencies.
