Emergency crews are rushing to distribute bottled water to flood-ravaged eastern Kentucky. The deadly flooding damaged water systems and the availability of clean drinking water is scarce. To make matters worse, forecasters warn that more rain is coming to the region. Here at home, a Bucks County fire department is doing its part to help first responders in Kentucky. The effort started Sunday afternoon from a Facebook post showing several Kentucky firehouses impacted by the floods. “It’s what we do, we gotta answer the call,” said Cole Wendling with the Staledale Fire Department. Inside the Ottsville firehouse, dozens of local firefighters and volunteers are packing up their equipment. “Fire gear, self-contained breathing apparatus, hand tools, hoze, a whole pallet of boots,” Palisades Regional Fire Rescue Chief William Shick said.
