Hurricane Harvey

Post Date:08/25/2017 11:05 AM

Harvey will be making landfall later tonight and into tomorrow. Due to the amount of expected rain, there is a threat of devastating flooding. The State of Texas is mobilizing several resources in advance of the storm. Battalion Chief Joey Kincaid has already been deployed to Corpus Christi to act as a Unit Resource Leader with an Incident Management Team (IMT). Firefighter Danny Moore is scheduled to respond to Pierce, Texas to assist with the IMT located there.

2-1-1 Texas A Call for Help is an organization that sets up a call center to answer phone calls from possible victims in flooded areas. Volunteers man the phones to help people find the closest shelter or food center in their affected area. The phone center hasn’t been activated yet but firefighters have volunteered to answer phone calls in the past. We will inform the media if the center stands up.
