The tornado-battered town of Greensburg is getting help from Douglas County government volunteers.
County Clerk Jamie Shew left for Greensburg on Wednesday. He will spend four or five days there providing administrative support.
Leaving today will be Jessica Holmes, a public safety dispatcher in the Emergency Communications Center; Ollis Wenger, a computer specialist in the Information Technology Department; and Jillian Blair, homeland security assistant with emergency management.
The Kansas Division of Emergency Management is coordinating relief efforts in Greensburg and has requested personnel with certain skills that these four county employees possess, said Teri Smith, acting director of Douglas County Emergency Management. Another team from Douglas County is expected to be sent next week, she said.
