"Just got back from Hurricane Harvey," Dave Gerboth, a Battalion Chief with San Diego Fire Rescue, said. He's attached to Urban Search and Rescue Team Task Force 8, which just came home Thursday from helping with Hurricane Harvey efforts.
Now, they're leaving for Florida to assist in Hurricane Irma relief efforts.
They'll need all this and more. Some team members are already on the road.
"We have 81 total going to Florida; 24 left this morning," according to Gerboth. "They're in a convoy with heavy equipment; three semi-trucks full of equipment, including multiple pallets of water, pallets of meals ready to eat, emergency gear and equipment."
Heavy rain and 185-mile an hour winds - almost anything disastrous can happen.
"We carry boats, people specialize in those operations; also have shoring equipment for buildings falling down, equipment to break concrete that people are trapped under; that can cut re-bar," Gerboth said.
