Evansville EMS Workers Deployed to Texas
Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas this weekend, and since then it's impact has been massive. Hurricane Harvey brought with it devastating amounts of rain that have impacted some of Texas' most populous cities. And now Tri-Staters are stepping up to help.
According to the New York Times currently at least 5 people have been killed and dozens more have been injured. Since Hurricane Harvey hit Texas thousands of people have had to turn to shelters as their homes were flooded.
Today on American Medical Response of Evansville's Facebook page they shared that 4 of their employees are being deployed to Texas to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
We can't ever thank our first responders enough. Not only for keeping our community safe, but for stepping up and going above and beyond the call of duty.
In times like this I like to remember my favorite quote from Mister Rogers:
When I was young and would see scary things on the news my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of disaster, I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers — so many caring people in this world.”
Thank you to John Wilcox, Scott Hedrick, Chris Everett and Will Maxwell for being the helpers Texas needs right now.
