Members of the Kanawha County Emergency Ambulance Authority are already lending a helping hand to those expected to be hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy.
Thirteen ambulance authority workers are expected to arrive at Fort Dix, N.J., later on Monday. Chaplain Mike Jarrett with the ambulance authority said the crew will be working in an Emergency Medical System; some will handle medical calls and others will support the 911 system.
The crew took five ambulances and one support vehicle to the Garden State. The workers are expected to be there for a week as residents brace for impact from the fierce storm and deal with the aftermath.
