The District 2 Task Force in Northern Indiana has not yet been deployed to help with emergency services in Louisiana due to Hurricane Isaac, but Starke County EMA Director Ted Bombagetti said all members are packed and ready to go if they are called to duty.
The District 2 Task Force has a swift water rescue and tactical rescue team within the unit and are ready to be mobile when called. Bombagetti commented that the teams can be on the road in a matter of hours. An exercise to prepare for events such as Hurricane Issac was recently held in Pulaski County.
The District 2 Task Force includes emergency personnel from Starke, Pulaski, Fulton, Marshall, and St. Joseph Counties.
