TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A crew from the Leon County Sheriff's Office is on the way to help out in South Florida.

Three deputies are taking the Mobile Command and Communications Post to Fort Myers.

The newly renovated unit will allow law enforcement responding to Irma to have computers, phones, and meeting space.

The deputies say providing officers a place to operate out of is a great asset.

Deputy Damon Sullivan is going. He said, "To be able to go down there and assist in whatever manner that we can to provide some other assistance to help them get back on their feet. So, we'll just go down there and do the best we can. It's just really, really a remarkable thing."

LCSO will have the mobile unit there for seven days. Then other agencies will come to offer relief.
