A relatively new team within the South Shore Fire Department has proven to be quite busy. The "Technical Rescue Team" was called out twice on Tuesday, April 2, helping to keep two very different structures from collapsing.
Members of the team are specially trained to keep buildings with structural issues from falling, and their biggest challenge yet came Tuesday night at the former Dairyland Greyhound Park in Kenosha. When it arrives at the scene of a disaster, the South Shore Fire Department's red shipping container offers more support than you'd think. It's the mobile headquarters for the Technical Rescue Team. Lieutenant Tom Stuckart is the team leader.
