Teams of volunteer responders provide assistance during disasters
Even amid the debris and destruction of disasters created by the forces of nature and sometimes the hands of men, a team of responders at Texas A&M
provides assistance and hope at a moment’s notice.
Texas Task Force 1 is an urban search and rescue response system, which operates out of College Station and deploys in response to disasters such as the 9/11 attacks, Hurricane Katrina and, more recently, the West fertilizer plant explosion and the tornado that struck Moore, Okla. Composed almost exclusively of trained volunteers, this team provides support and relief across the state and country in times of need.
