First responders and rescue workers from all over North Alabama shipped out on
Tuesday to help our neighbors in South Alabama.
Fire crews from the Fort Payne swift water rescue team left the station and met up with other agencies at the Marshall County EMA to deploy to Prattville for flood assistance.
Due to potential flooding and heavy rain from Hurricane Sally, members of the North Alabama Task Force are ready to serve.
Fort Payne Fire Chief Ron Saferite sent five of his swift water team members to Prattville.
Other agencies from Marshall County, Decatur, Guntersville, and Madison are also assisting.
Saferite said thankfully they have enough crew members on call to be on standby to also assist locally if flooding were to happen.
