Four Chapel Hill Fire Department employees deployed to Texas Thursday morning, Aug. 31, 2017, as members of the North Carolina Task Force 8 in a partnership with the cities of Durham and Raleigh.
Task Force 8 is expected to be deployed 9-10 days. The team will assist in search and rescue efforts that continue in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which dropped a record 51.88 inches of rain in southeast Texas.
The Town of Chapel Hill has mutual aid agreements in place to call on if a swift-water rescue is necessary in our area while the team is deployed.
