Firefighters in Adirondack towns relatively untouched by Sandy are getting ready to head downstate to help pump out basements, fight fires and direct traffic in the storm-ravaged New York City region.
Franklin County Emergency Services Director Ricky Provost tells the Adirondack Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/Se1ul7 ) that the governor's office is asking firefighters in northern parts of the state to come to southern New York to assist with storm recovery.
Franklin County sent a technical rescue crew to help on Long Island on Sunday. The crew is trained to help with a variety of different kind of rescues like high angle, confined space, rope and water.
