Kudos from Austin Police Department

The following came from Sgt. Jason Mutchler with APD's Highway Response Team with regard to Station 30 and Station 23 on the B shift.

"At 6:20a today we had a multi car crash on I35 in about the 9000 block SB. I don't think conditions couldn't have been any worse with the cold downpour and the entire SB lanes of traffic blocked. I want to give a thanks to your troops. They assisted with clearing the roadway by pulling a heavily damaged dually pickup with a 14,000# trailer attached from the left lane of traffic off to the exit lane with their Engine. This allowed us to open up 3 lanes of traffic very quickly and restore some traffic flow. Without their assistance it would have been awhile before we would have been about get the necessary equipment there to move it off the roadway."

Great job everyone!
