TEXSAR Assists Galveston County During The Commission Of The USS Fort Worth

On Saturday, September 22, 2012, TEXSAR deployed two teams to support the Galveston County Office of Emergency Management (GCOEM). The teams worked with Harris County Hazmat, Galveston Fire Department (GFD), The HELP Foundation and the Galveston Port Authority Police Department (GPAPD).

The teams participated in the Incident Support Team to provide detection and observation during the commission of the USS Fort Worth and other events in the Port Authority area. Harris County Hazmat members provided our teams with training and equipment and the GCOEM established an Incident Command Post to coordinate public safety issues during these events. TEXSAR teams were supported by the Fire and Law Enforcement team members.
