LAKEHURST, N.J. (AP) - Emergency crews want to see how they would respond to a large explosion in New Jersey.

They’ll converge on Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on Friday for Operation Fallout.

The drill is designed to develop and assess capabilities for search and rescue incidents. State responders will work with the National Guard to transport personnel and equipment.

Responders will search and rescue victims trapped in confined spaces and rubble.
