TERT OH-1 arrived in Lee County this evening around 4PM. Team Leaders received a briefing from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office 911 Center personnel, and set up camp for the evening. They are currently adjacent to the 911 center, having set up their tent and base of operations. Following their briefing, the team offloaded their supply trailer, and got the generators operational.
The dispatchers have split into two teams, and will be working 12 hour shifts, changing at 4AM and 4PM daily. The radio technicians will likely meet with their Florida counterparts tomorrow as well to get a bearing on the infrastructure condition in the area. The team is healthy, and ready to get to work.
