Vegas Helps Houston

My heart goes out to Houston. I spent 23 years living in Texas (Dallas) before moving to Vegas. There were many reasons for the move, but the weather was certainly one of them.  If you can handle the heat, there are no hurricanes, tornadoes or white outs. Earthquakes here topple lawn chairs.

Nonetheless, Nevada has Task Force-1. It is one of 23 specialized teams based all over America that provide technical emergency response wherever they are needed.  The Harvey rescue team includes a four-member hazardous materials team (because Houston is the petrochemical capital of the ...world). Their job is to prevent contamination by rinsing Houstonians and rescuers wading through the flood waters. Fourteen others are swift-water rescue specialists.


The Nevada team, all members of the Clark County Fire Department, headed south with their own boats, food and water supply because they know those are already in short supply in Houston.


This group has previous. They worked Hurricanes Katrina, Ike and Gustav.


Oh, an annual Federal Emergency Management  Association grant funds the task force. Annually. From the budget President Trump wants to slash almost $400 million from.
