PORT ARANSAS, Texas — A first responder couple are making sure stranded victims of Hurricane Harvey are getting the medical attention they need.

KXII reported that Pottsboro Fire Chief and paramedic Donnie Glenn and his wife Donna, who is a nurse, are traveling from shelter to shelter in a mobile medical unit to give victims medical attention.

"If they're diabetic, they have high blood pressure, they can't get back to get their medications," Chief Glenn said.  "We're looking for shelters, churches, where people are grouping.”

The couple has spent the last three days in the medical unit working alongside volunteers from all over the state.

"We're tired and we need to shower, but it's what we do, it's our skills, it's what we train for, we gladly came down here," Chief Glenn said.
