Arizona Task Force 1, a search and rescue team from Phoenix, is awaiting official assignment orders to help with search and rescue efforts in Florida after Hurricane Irma.

AZ-TF1 is currently staying at the Orlando Convention Center with hundreds of other military and search and rescue workers.

AZ-TF1 is an elite urban search and rescue team made up of more than 80 members from Phoenix Fire Department.

Last month, the task force went to Texas to help with recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey.
