Any EMTs or medics headed to west?

I have a friend that lives 12 miles from the plant and she said they were not letting any volunteers in the area due to eminent danger of another explosion. Anyone heard the same or headed down there? I'm an EMT in Dallas, thinking about heading down tomorrow if they are accepting volunteer help for searching/body retrieval.
Eta: she said it blew their deadbolted door open and maid the house sway/walls crack!

I'm police. I volunteered. Deputy chief told me to hold on until
if/when they request help. Between Waco and DPS, they can get a lot of help down there pretty quick. Practically speaking, sometimes too many volunteers, without effective cross communication and radio inter operability, doesn't do much good.

If anyone hears they need volunteers please post the info here and I will disseminate it to my friends/network.

I don't know what they are accepting for help out there. Tonight we had way too many people trying to help and it made all the triage and command sites too congested.

DPS has been on TV for the last few hours telling people NOT to come.

Confirmed by our inquiry.
