Ohio first responders go to North Carolina – WLWT Cincinnati

Ohio first responders go to North Carolina – WLWT Cincinnati

A second team from Ohio Task Force One is on its way to North Carolina.

The specialized urban search and rescue team left its head office in Kettering, Ohio Wednesday.

The 16-man team will focus on rescue operations for water and are based in Raleigh.

The team members could spend a few weeks on the path of the hurricane. Initially they were able to carry out rescue operations quickly, but they were able to continue operations beyond the worst storm, control flooded houses and ensure that no one was left behind.

Ryan Marzheuser usually fights in Covington, but as a member of Task Force One he responds to hurricanes Sandy in New York and Matthew in North Carolina.
