Pulaski County EMA helps Baltimore dig out
Two Pulaski County locals are returning home after spending several days in Baltimore where about 30 inches of snow fell.
Pulaski County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) Director Sheri Gaillard and Fulton County EMA Director Larry Hoover were two members of an incident management team that traveled to Maryland to give a helping hand after a blizzard hit the east coast.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security incident management team that Gaillard and Hoover were a part of traveled to Maryland on Jan. 25.
“We helped manage the snow removal for the city. We managed about 1,500 employees or workers and over a thousand pieces of equipment that included tri-axle trailers, bulldozers, Bobcats, payloaders and tri-axle dump trucks,” said Gaillard, who was one of two women on the incident management team.
This is the first time that the incident management team managed such a large amount of resources, according to Gaillard.
The team is arriving home two days early.
