Fresh off its trip to Houston for Hurricane Harvey, Nevada’s Task Force 1 is heading to Georgia. They will help out with rescue missions connected to Hurricane Irma.

Clark County Fire Chief Greg Cassell says, “they take everything from heavy support structures to concrete buildings to lightweight structures to boats to do rapid search of areas just like we did in Texas. Some of those members just returned 19 hours ago and they already spun up and heading out the door.”

The team consists of 70 people. They should arrive at Robins Air Force Base in 3 days.
