Swift Water Rescue


Groups and agencies in the northern parts of our region that were not impacted by Hurricane Sandy are stepping up to send help to the storm ravaged areas.

Last year parts of Vermont and northern New York were ripped apart by Tropical Storm Irene, and now they want to help those impacted by Sandy. Some of the first volunteers heading south are from the Vermont and New Hampshire Upper Valley American Red Cross.  Spokesman Doug Bishop says the eight  trained individuals being deployed left for a staging area in White Plains.
