FLORIDA — Ohio Task Force 1 has been mobilized to assist, as needed, with the aftermath of Hurricane Mathew.

Two members of the the Piqua Fire Department, Vince Ashcraft and Kevin Ganger, are part of the 80-man unit on their way to set up in Lakeland, Florida.

The pair joined the Task Force and departed our area last night and are expected to arrive in Florida today.

We will provide more information on the Task Force and Piqua firefighters as it becomes available.
