The Louisiana Urban Search and Rescue Task Force #2 (USAR) was called up to assist in the aftermath of the deadly tornados in Alabama.  The Central Fire Department has personnell on the USAR team and two of those members were deployed to Alabama. Captain Stephen Branscum and Captain Trip Haynes are responding with the team. In the attached photos they are loading gear into their response unit. They are pulling our John Deere Gator that will be used to get into those areas where a vehicle can not travel because of the debris. The Gator has a backboard and First aid supplies in the event someone needs to be transported to a waiting Ambulance.
