A second wave of help in the form of Sarasota County first responders is heading up to the Carolinas to help out in recovery efforts after Hurricane Florence.

Six county firefighters left yesterday morning for Raleigh, NC, where they will be assigned from there.

They will be responding to water rescues and other 911 calls in that area- the group is also relieving the first wave of Sarasota County firefighters and EMTs that went to North Carolina last week.
