10/15/2018: Hurricane Michael Deployment Update

The Disaster Response Team headed out at 0400 this morning from Tallahassee to Panama City to be attached to the Urban Search and Rescue Teams (USAR) from all over the country to assist while they perform their missions. Our Strike Team consists of a service from PA and the remaining is made up of a service out of Arkansas that is partly staffed by members of the Memphis Fire Department.

Hurricane Michael Deployment Update

From EMS Chief John Hitchens:

Disaster Response Team today definitely made a difference in Panama City, FL. Responded early this morning to reports of a nursing home that had residents without power. With the shortage of fuel the facility had no more fuel for their generators. We were able to assist in evacuating 40 residents to their sister nursing facility that was fully functional. The staff was AMAZING as they never left their resident’s side while Hurricane Michael pummeled their building. Overwhelmed by the sense of humanity here among the devastation. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings in what new ways we can help the incredible people of Florida.

Members from Morgantown Fire Department Fire Prevention and Star City Volunteer Fire Department spent the morning teaching children about the importance of fire safety.

From Storybook Daycare’s Facebook page:

“Today we had some very special guests visit us at Storybook Daycare! First, The Morgantown Fire Department came in. They read a few books about fire safety and talked to us about what we can do to remain safe if there is a fire!

Then the Star City Fire Department brought their Fire Truck and Ambulance! Each child got a turn to sit in the drivers seat of the fire truck, We all received a tour of the ambulance and fire truck and we even got to try on their fireman hats!”
