Tuesday, May 21, 2013
MOORE, Okla. (AP) — Officials in Joplin, Mo., have brought together a team of public safety employees they are sending to tornado-stricken Moore.
Joplin was devastated by a tornado two years ago that killed 158 people and injured hundreds more. On Monday, Joplin organized a team of about a dozen police and firefighters to assist in Moore.
Joplin City Manager Mark Rohr says his community remembers the assistance it received in 2011 and feels an obligation to lend a hand in Moore.
The team from Joplin is to conduct a needs assessment and help determine areas in which Moore needs further assistance. Joplin will also work to provide other assistance.
