Red Cross workers, retired FDNY members head to Texas areas hit hardest by Harvey with supplies

New York City Red Cross workers and FDNY firefighters are headed to flood-ravaged Texas with emergency supplies, reports Edgar Sandoval in New York Daily News.

The FDNY’s DART team (DART is an acronym for “disaster assistance response team”) are driving box trucks to areas hit by Hurricane Harvey, where they will stay for two weeks.

“I’m personally motivated because in 9/11 the whole country responded to us when we needed it the most. Now it’s our turn,” Lt. George Ricco Diaz said.
