Phoenix Fire Department task force team deactivated by FEMA
Phoenix firefighters are no longer heading to New York City to aid in the relief efforts from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
The Phoenix Fire Department confirmed Thursday night the task force team has been deactivated. They are no longer needed on the East Coast and aren't expected to be recalled.
The time difference and distance were determining factors in this decision. It is believed the Arizona team would not be needed in two days, which is how long it would take to get there.
