Hopewell Valley Emergency Services Specialist, Ashley Coble, has been activated as part of the United States Department of Health and Human Services National Disaster Medical System Team 4. Specialist Coble’s team will fly to Dallas, Texas, today and, from there, will be deployed to the Houston area to assist with the medical needs of the victims of Hurricane Harvey and the massive flooding that has devastated the Houston area.
“We are proud of Specialist Coble and fully support her and her mission,” said Mike Chipowsky, Chairman of the Hopewell Township Board of Fire Commissioners. “While we would all like to go to Texas and help in anyway that we can, the response to this disaster must be organized so that the help arrives where it is needed most and provides the best care possible.”
Specialist Coble is scheduled to return from Texas on September 10th.
