Albany -- The Albany-Dougherty County Search and Rescue Team was given a travel trailer Thursday that they will use as a mobile command post.

This trailer was given to the City of Albany by G.E.M.A. during the flood of 1994. The Albany-Dougherty Drug Unit has been using it the last few years but no longer needs it. Drug Commander Bill Berry signed it over to the Rescue Team, which has a real need for it.

Rescue Team Commander Chuck Mitchell said "We need a command post that has communications available inside. Plus all our first aid equipment when we go to different events or disaster scenes."

The Search and Rescue Team is made up of 30 volunteers, who work through the Albany Fire Department and Emergency Management office.
