Texas search and rescue team staying home

Texas Task Force 1, one of 28 teams in FEMA’s national and urban search and rescue system, was prepared to go to Haiti with 50 tons of rescue equipment.  The task force was demobilized on January 18 after the United Nations declared the search and rescue teams already in Haiti sufficient for the job. 
Texas Task Force 1 has an international repuation and was ready to go within four hours of receiving the initial call.
