Five Locals Deployed With California Task Force To Haiti

khts_fireenginefrontCalifornia Task Force 2 (CA-TF2), Los Angeles County Fire’s world-class Heavy Rescue Task Force, has been mobilized for deployment to Haiti to help rescue and recover earthquake victims in the impoverished Caribbean nation, following Tuesday’s reported 7.0 magnitude quake southwest of Port-au-Prince.

Five firefighters from the Santa Clarita Valley stations are among the 72-member team that received the deployment request from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). They include three men assigned to Station 76 in Valencia and one each assigned to Stations 104 and 107 in Canyon Country.

California Task Force 2 (CA-TF2) is a specially-trained and equipped Urban Search and Rescue Task Force consisting of Los Angeles County Fire Department firefighters and paramedics rescue specialists, emergency room physicians, structural engineers, heavy equipment specialists, canine search dogs and handlers, hazardous materials technicians, communications specialists, and logistics specialists. This unique technical rescue team responds with 55,000 pounds of prepackaged search and rescue tools and medical equipment to conduct around-the-clock search and rescue operations at domestic and international disasters, both natural and man-made.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department is one of the largest emergency service agencies in the world, providing fire protection and life safety services to more than 3.8 million residents and commercial business customers in the County’s 2,305-square-mile area, and around the globe when needed.
