Task Force One Back in Action
You could sense joy as the trucks paraded back home.
"It's pretty stressful, but I'm confident that they know what's going on," said Angie Creamer wife of Task Force member Josh.
Josh and nearly 80 other members of Missouri's Task Force One were sent to Atlanta last week to help out in Ernesto's wake.
"Its a great thing that they do," Creamer said "And everybody should be proud of them."
But now they're finally home, again.
"Hurricane Katrina was a lot worse just because of all the media attention that it got..." said Angie.
Last Sunday Angie and Josh Creamer were watching a movie when plans changed.
"I got a phone call late Sunday night that told us we were probably gonna be heading down early sometime Monday morning," said Josh Creamer a member Missouri Task Force One.
Ready to move out at a moments notice.
The task force says it brought a lot of equipment to help out with Ernesto. In fact they say the amount of supplies they brought with them could fill 12 giant trailers
Luckily, Ernesto didn't pack a punch. Now Josh is ready for some R&R.
"Just kind of kick back and relax a little bit,"said Josh.
But his wife has other ideas, like yard work. Back to everyday life for those who at least this time diverted disaster.
Missouri Task Force One is one of 28 FEMA urban search and rescue forces across the country.
