Mobile County, AL (WKRG)
Members of the MCSO are on their way to Texas. They’re taking one of their large mobile response vehicles to help first responders. The plan is to cook food for first responders. There are five members of the sheriff’s office headed to storm ravaged areas. Officials say this is their chance to give back after being helped in disasters themselves.
“We’ve been where they’ve been with our oil spill, hurricanes and things of that nature we’ve had our backs against the walls before and other agencies have come in and helped us, it’s time for us to give back, step up to the plate and go do what you have to do,” said MCSO Cpl. Bradley Crenshaw. They aren’t sure where exactly they will work out of but they’re coordinating efforts with the Houston Police Department. The truck departed at about 5:25 am from the county lot in west Mobile.
