FEMA pre-stages trailers at MCLB

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is pre-staging approximately 75 trailers here in preparation for Tropical Storm Erika, which is forecast to hit Florida on Monday.

The FEMA trailers contain emergency supplies – primarily food, water and power generation equipment that may be needed in the event the storm makes landfall early next week and impacts Georgia, or any of its neighboring states, to include Florida and South Carolina.

The trailers are already arriving at the Civilian Human Resources Office at MCLB, and will continue throughout the weekend.

No hazardous materials are contained in the trailers.
