Virginia first responders return from helping South Carolina flood victims

FAIRFAX, Va. (WRIC) — Dozens of first responders from Virginia returned on Monday after spending a week serving in storm-ravaged South Carolina.

Buses carried the 80 members of the Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue Team home. Though the team was stateside, cell phones are confiscated just as when they go overseas, cutting off their communication back home.

The rescue team has also been to Haiti, Turkey and Nepal.
