|OSFM and ODF team in Bay County, Florida |
supporting the cleanup efforts for Hurricane Michael.
Incident Commander Ted Kunze said, “OSFM and ODF working in unified command along with the IMTs from other states optimized our resources and created a robust IMT, which allowed us to get started quickly and efficiently on our search and rescue mission. I feel we all represented Oregon very well.”
The team spent time in Mexico Beach, where the eye made landfall. Tens of thousands of tarps have been distributed in Bay County. They were in total awe of the spirit of the people here and the outpouring of volunteers throughout the county from all over the country. A funeral was held Wednesday for the Bay County firefighter killed last week. The Oregon IMT is donating $1,000 to the family.
