Hurricane Michael
The State of Tennessee on Wednesday deployed multiple ambulance strike teams to Florida to support emergency officials readying for life-safety impacts when Hurricane Michael makes landfall. “This is what Tennesseans do. In times of disaster or crisis, we volunteer to help those in need,” Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam said. “I am proud of these men and women from across the state who have traveled to Florida, heading directly into the storm, to provide life-saving services and relief to those affected by Hurricane Michael.” The teams include a total of 35 members representing departments including Greene, Grainger and Jefferson Counties. The ambulance strike teams will deploy for 11 days. Hurricane Michael made landfall at Mexico Beach, Florida as a Category 4 storm with winds in excess of 130 mph. It is the strongest hurricane to hit the US since 1992, with one-half million homes without power.
