To find out if there are local citizens interested in volunteering to form a search and rescue team in Walker County to assist law enforcement, East Texas Mounted Search & Rescue from Centerville is holding an informational meeting at the Walker County Storm Shelter on Thursday, September 12th, at 5:30.
All those who own a horse, truck, or trailer in the county are invited.
Walker County Emergency Coordinator Butch Davis has passed along to the media that it’s “not county operated” but guided by East Texas Mounted Search & Rescue. It’s all volunteer, and participants “have to pass their riding inspections.”
Those who don’t ride can be a part by providing trucks, trailers, or ATV’s. Others, with handheld devices for communication, can participate.
