The crews have been notified and the bags are getting packed. The North Carolina Baptists on Mission and the Greensboro Fire Department said they are ready for hurricane Ian. Deputy Fire Chief, Dwayne Church, said while crews have been training for this since they became firefighters, now it's time to make sure they are good to go. "We have our boats hooked up ready to go, logistics are all taken care of, today they are packing their bags and getting their bags ready just in case we are deployed," said Church. Church said crews are also preparing here at home. Each fire station over the weekend checked water and fuel levels on generators and made sure small engine tools are ready to go. "We want to make sure if something's coming through Greensboro that we're here for our people first and foremost," said Church.
