EXCLUSIVE: A suspicious package left at an Emerson temple before Yom Kippur services today proved harmless, authorities said this afternoon.
The Bergen County Police Bomb Squad was among a host of emergency responders summoned to Congregation B’Nai Israel at 53 Palisade Avenue, a short distance from Emerson Junior-Senior High School, after the beeping package reportedly was found.
A report that the object was an insulin pump couldn’t immediately be confirmed.
Traffic was diverted and firefighters were placed on standby following the 4:40 p.m. call.
A secondary sweep of the premises and immediate area also had negative results.
Area police, firefighters and EMS workers all responded.
