Tennessee Task Force 1 returns to Memphis after helping hurricane victims

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - First responders from Tennessee Task Force 1 are back in Memphis after a deployment to help hurricane victims in Florida.

The 80 members of Tennessee Task Force 1 included firefighters, doctors, engineers, and K9 handlers.

The task force was stationed in Georgia for a while before deploying right into where the damage from Hurricane Irma was the worst--the Florida Keys.

This deployment came less than two days after the task force was in Houston for Hurricane Harvey for a week, where they rescued more than 1,000 people.
