SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa fire official is headed to Kosovo for an exchange about disaster preparedness.
The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1bKlgNe ) that Assistant Sioux City Fire Chief Jim Clark is scheduled to be in the Balkans this week. Clark is part of a three-person team dispatched to the Balkans to help Kosovo prepare for disasters.
Clark will spend the week interviewing Kosovo officials. He says he's excited to learn what the country east of the Adriatic Sea can teach him.
Clark served as one of Sioux City's flood recovery leaders during and after the historic Missouri River flood in 2011. As a firefighter, he responded to the deadly United Airlines Flight 232 crash on July 19, 1989, at Sioux Gateway Airport.
