Texas Task Force 1 Stands Down in Flooded North Texas

By  | 

College Station-based Texas Task Force 1 has been demobilized from the flood-affected portions of North Texas.

Water rescue teams had been involved in numerous rescues and evacuations since deploying Tuesday. Additional teams were activated Wednesday to help with the efforts, with a total of seven rescue teams being involved.

In all, 52 members of Texas Task Force 1 were deployed. Only a single member will remain as a liaison. More than 300 members make up the statewide unit, which is sponsored through the Texas Engineering Extension Service.
