COLLEGE STATION, TX — A Texas
A&M Forest Service Incident Management Team has deployed to Central Texas
to aid in response and recovery efforts following a massive explosion at a
fertilizer plant in West, Texas.
The 18-member team — as well as the
agency's mobile command post and satellite trailer — was requested by the Texas
Division of Emergency Management to help emergency management officials track
the local, state and federal resources responding to the scene.
The bulk of the team – 15 members –
is en route to the disaster site, with the remaining three headed to the State
Operations Center in Austin.
Texas A&M Forest Service is
considered one of the state's lead agencies when it comes to incident
management and disaster response.
