Three Edison Firefighters Deployed To Aid Texas Storm Victims

FEMA Hurricane Harvey Donald Trump FEMA

The team of almost three dozen Orange County firefighters helping respond to Hurricane Harvey have unintentionally split, battalion Chief Shane Sherwood told KPCC. The task forces are comprised of emergency service personnel, each with specialized training in search and rescue, extrication, high water rescue and anything else necessary for successful saves.

"Morale is outstanding, everybody is good and they are doing good work", said Battalion Chief Brad Thavenet of Lincoln Fire and Rescue, which is coordinating the task force. Typically they hit land and move on.

"The water has to subside so we can do more rescues", Ventura said.

The Hurricane Harvey-Category 4 storm struck South Texas late on Friday (local time), knocking down trees, power poles and signs, but forecasters predicted that water levels will still rise as torrential rain and blasting winds would continue over the next few days.

Task Force 1 also has access to Black Hawk helicopters, which Saunders said they have utilized to rescue people and quickly transport them to the hospital.

Saunders said he did not have on-hand the number of those rescued by Task Force 1, but said he will provide that number to the state, which will later release them. Tuesday morning, the Nebraska and OH teams were stationed on higher ground on Interstate 10, an area expected to continue flooding as more rain comes down and Houston's reservoirs surpass capacity.

"Our task force prioritized people that the calls came in from 911 who needed the most, significant help", Kinney said. It needs a large staging area. They came across a group of residents who were holding onto light poles so they wouldn't be swept away by the flood waters, Hoey said.

People walk dogs through flooded streets as the effects of Hurricane Harvey are seen Sunday in Galveston.

In 2005, Task Force 5 took several days to travel in buses across the United States.

Over the weekend, videos and photos of heroic efforts to rescue Texans stranded by the storm covered social media.

"We have some evacuees that left home and now are running out of their medicines", DuBose said. "I believe we're ready to face any danger". While you are at it, keep these foods together so they will keep their temperatures longer.
