COLLEGE STATION, TX — A Texas
A&M Forest Service Incident Management Team has deployed to Central Texas
to aid in response and recovery efforts following a massive explosion at a
fertilizer plant in West, Texas.
The 18-member team — as well as the
agency's mobile command post and satellite trailer — was requested by the Texas
Division of Emergency Management to help emergency management officials track
the local, state and federal resources responding to the scene.

is en route to the disaster site, with the remaining three headed to the State
Operations Center in Austin.
Texas A&M Forest Service is

management and disaster response.
