COLUMBIA, Mo. -

Missouri Task Force One sent three volunteers to Arkansas Monday night.

The three members were deployed as part of the FEMA Incident Support Team.

All 3 members are prepared to assist if needed.

The Incident Support Team and Texas Task Force 1 are in place and staging in a ready
position at the Little Rock Air Force Base.

The members are filling roles of IST Leader/Operations Section Chief, Structural Specialist and Urban Search and Rescue Liason with the Arkansas State Emergency Operations Center.

Task Force 1 is prepared to be in Arkansas for 14 days, but it's unlikely they'll be there that long due to experience and capabilities at the local level.
