Murfreesboro Fire Rescue Department (MFRD) water rescue personnel will deploy to South Carolina Wednesday morning to assist with Hurricane Florence efforts.

The storm is shaping up to be one of the strongest in decades.


A total of 12 MFRD personnel will join other teams from Middle, East, and West Tennessee, which include personnel from other disciplines such as police, emergency medical services, and other technical rescue specialties.


A total of eight teams will depart Tennessee tomorrow for Fort McRady, South Carolina, near Columbia, to stage until they receive orders.


MFRD will post pictures, updates, and more information on their social media outlets throughout the process, according to Public Information Officer Ashley McDonald.
