Hall County sends teams to aid in Hurricane Matthew relief efforts

Hall County Government is deploying a team of fire services personnel to south Georgia in response to a request for assistance in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.

“Eight members of Hall County Fire Services are deploying to Perry, Ga., which will serve as a staging area for Georgia Search and Rescue in the case that team is needed in coastal areas,” Hall County Fire Chief Jeff Hood said. “They will join approximately 25 other fire services personnel from elsewhere in the state to provide technical rescues for structural collapses, inside confined spaces or trenches and rope rescues as needed.”

Hood said one advanced life support ambulance and two additional personnel are also being deployed as a part of a task force through the Georgia Mutual Aid Group to replace depleted or destroyed resources in the coastal region.

“Hall County is proud to offer assistance to our brothers and sisters in public safety elsewhere in the state,” Hall County Board of Commissioners Chairman Richard Mecum said. “As a former member of the public safety community, I have seen firsthand how lives are saved when we reach across jurisdictional lines to help one another in the wake of a natural disaster.”

If needed, Hall County will also provide transport of the mobile hospital assigned to the North Georgia region if it’s needed in south Georgia.

According to Chief Hood, these requests have been filled in accordance with the Georgia Emergency Management Agency- Homeland Security Statewide Mutual Aid and Assistance Agreement.
