Hope this finds everyone doing well!
For all those in the midst of the horrible flooding, my prayers are with you.
Our neighbors to the east will have some additional help arriving today,
makes me proud to say that one of our local volunteer fire dept.'s
Water Rescue Team will be aiding flooded communities in eastern PA.
As reported in the Warren Newspaper
"Flooding throughout the Susquehanna River basin in eastern Pennsylvania has sent the Glade VFD Water Rescue Team into action.Terry Carlson, chief of Glade Volunteer Fire Department, was informed that the team had been placed on standby Wednesday afternoon by the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) and then received a request for response and deployment at 11:45 Thursday morning.
Carlson said that PEMA expects the team to be on the road "in approximately four hours" and they prepared to leave at 4 p.m. Thursday. The Lake City Fire Department team, from just outside of Girard in Erie County, was traveling with the Glade VFD team.
Carlson explained that PEMA did not give the teams explicit orders. Originally, they were told to head to Harrisburg, but he received new guidelines and was told to drive on Interstate 80 and to call for further direction when they entered Sullivan County on Thursday evening.
Six members of Glade VFD will be going on the department's first deployment to the eastern side of the state including "three swiftwater techs and three operations people," according to Carlson. He said that they have responded to calls regionally but have never been called this far away.
Along with the six members, they will be taking their new technical rescue trailer, a 16-foot inflatable craft, as well as a regional counter-terrorism Chevrolet Suburban that has command post capabilities. Carlson expects the deployment will last no more than three days, but he has yet to receive a specific timetable from PEMA"
