COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont swift water rescue team is returning to Vermont from Texas, where it helped with the response to flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

Fifteen people were deployed last week from fire departments and rescue crews around the state after the request came in from Texas.

On Friday, Vermont Emergency Management reported the members of the group known as Vermont Task Force 1 were on their way back to the state. It’s unclear when they will arrive.

The team includes members of Colchester Technical Rescue, the state fire marshal’s office, and members of the Burlington, Charlotte, Lyndonville and Williston fire departments.
