Hadley Carbon Monoxide Incident

Hadley FD trucks and Amherst FD ambulances on scene Maple Farms Foods

A very large number of first responders are at the scene of a carbon monoxide incident at Maple Farms Foods on South Maple Street in Hadley.

One victim has already been transported to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, the nearest hospital with a critical care unit and at least one other has been transported to Cooley Dickinson in Northampton.

Apparently the problem was caused by use of a forklift inside the building and the person who was operating it was the one transported to Baystate Medical Center.

About a half-dozen shoppers were also being evaluated by AFD after exhibiting symptoms of possible carbon monoxide poisoning.

All hospitals have critical care units. CDH would be the closest one.

Sure looks like they need a few more guys on this one.
