There’s a little bit of Central Oregon helping out in the Joplin, Missouri devastation. Former Redmond Police Chief Lane Roberts, who is now the Police Chief of Joplin, says the tornado devastation is one of the biggest events he's had to deal with. He says it was amazing how fast the help and organization materialized: "There are thousands of people involved in this recovery effort. Not to mention the faith-based community and it makes you feel good about being an American to watch this kind of thing. But, it wasn't my training that was the issue. When the tornado came through, the units in the field immediately knew what to do and began the effort before any of the administrative or executive level people had ever acted." Roberts says cleaning up the devastation will take months and possibly years. He says he has received a lot of calls and emails of concern from his friends here in Central Oregon and he appreciates them all.
