Yonkers firefighters deployed by FEMA to help Katrina victims
Yonkers firefighters were deployed Thursday on a mission to help victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The 24 firefighters are taking part in a mission by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). They will first go to FEMA?s regional headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia to find out exactly where they will be sent.
The mission is expected to last at least 30 days. The Yonkers Fire Department has 90 other volunteers on hand to relieve those who headed down South.
Members of the Harrison Police Department are already in Gulfport, Mississippi. For more on their experience there click here.
