    Has there been an official call for volunteers form the FF/EMS ranks? I cannot help but think that there are a few of us from the boonies who would volunteer to spend a few weeks helping our brothers/sisters in the disaster area.

    I heard on the radio yesterday that FEMA was asking for firefighters. So far I've been unable to find any information other than that. I'll go if they want me.

    Our dept sent about 100 trained in Search/Rescue Monday. A second group is being formed. Word from the 1st group was bad. They gave away their food and supplies and were calling for help. Lack of fuel has stalled supplies somewhere between here and there...

    I wish I could go in to offer help, armed to the teeth. I'm an EMT and am currently in training to be a psychologist. Surely that's needed there. Just don't know who to talk to.
