Indiana Task Force One Told Services Not Needed In Haiti
Indiana Task Force One Commander Bill Brown tells WRTV's Jennifer Carmack that his search and rescue team, which deployed from Indianapolis four days ago to Miami awaiting deployment to earthquake-stricken Haiti, has been told his team's services are not needed. Indiana's search and rescue team, along with three others from around the country, were told their services were not needed, even after a team from Ohio had already loaded its cargo on a military plane bound for Haiti. Brown blames the decision not to deploy the search and rescue teams on federal red tape. A disappointed Brown told Carmack that it doesn't appear we've learned many lessons from Hurricane Katrina.
