Members of the District 2 Task Force in Indiana have been called to duty to provide aide to those in New Jersey as Hurricane Sandy could wreak havoc on the East Coast.

Starke County EMA Director Ted Bombagetti, who is a member of the District 2 Task Force, said ambulance support deployed out of Indianapolis yesterday. A total of 50 ambulances are making their way to New Jersey and five of those ambulances are coming out of the District 2 Task Force which encompasses Starke, Pulaski, Fulton, Marshall, and St. Joseph Counties.

Other requests for Indiana resources have been made to the Emergency Operation Center of Indiana Department of Homeland Security from other affected states. District 2 has two Incident Management Teams and the Swift Water Rescue Team is ready to respond if called to Maryland for support.
