Alabama EMA workers helping in New York
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A nine-member team from the Alabama Emergency Management Agency is helping in New York with the recovery effort from Superstorm Sandy.
State EMA Director Art Faulkner said EMA teams from all over the country helped Alabama after the killer tornadoes in April 2011, and Alabama is pleased to return the favor.
The Alabama group is working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the Joint Field Office in Queens. They are expected to return to Alabama on Nov. 27.
