Tennessee Highway Patrol donates supplies to Bay County in Florida


Two semi trucks full of donations rolled into the Bay County, Florida Highway Patrol headquarters Tuesday morning. The Tennessee Highway Patrol along with members of the Tennessee department of transportation, drove down plenty of needed items for individuals impacted by Hurricane Michael.  Items include food, water, cleaning supplies, hygiene products and blankets. Tennessee Highway Patrol Lieutenant, John Harmon, said after seeing the damage first hand, its unreal— and they're glad they can help. "We Knew you still needed help, and so we contacted our brother agency, The Florida Highway Patrol, to see if that need was still here. They said it was and we asked them if we could help them and they told us exactly what the communities needed," said Harmon.  FHP thanked them for their donation by presenting the Tennessee officers with a Florida flag signed by Florida officers. FHP said they plan to distribute these donations to local food banks and non-profit groups.
