BRYAN COUNTY, Okla. -- Some new emergency tools were put into service in Bryan County on Friday. Two trailers used by FEMA recently bought by the county were unveiled at Friday’s Durant city council meeting.

The county bought them for $1,850, down from the original cost of $18,000.

"We will use the trailers for extended emergency situations. We can take the mobile communications into the field." James Dalton of Bryan County Emergency Management says.

Dalton says the trailers have kitchens, beds, and showers, which means emergency workers can stay on scene.

    Yes SIR; it was a media event. Everyone who had their hair combed and pants zipped got on TV with the FEMA Trailers. Maybe, a program can be generated like the Sheriff's-Air-Force, get other counties and states to throw in some upkeep money for the deer-lease. The STARS do SHINE in Bryan County Oklahoma.

    How exciting! The unveiling of the FEMA trailers in Bryan County. Was there a huge parade and celebration? Will there be a HUGE fire works display? Bryan County Sheriff's Air Force - I love it!

    What on earth possessed them to buy these trailers? Does Bryan County have that many emergencies or disasters in which they need a trailer? Are they easy to move around? Where will they be stored/kept/placed? Do the officials have mother-in-laws living with them and needed new living quarters for them? Or will they be placed on some good ole boys deer lease?
