TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa Police Department's Disaster Area Response Team (DART) has been asked by the Oklahoma Incident Management Team to go to Moore following Monday's tornado.

Police Chief Chuck Jordan says the DART team will be working with the management of the incident command center in Moore.

He says the team will identify specific needs in order to make requests to federal and state agencies for assistance.

"The team will be on site for at least two days but their resources will be readily available for as long as they are needed," Chief Chuck Jordan said

"We will provide any and all requested resources to the city of Moore and surrounding communities that were affected."

Two members of the DART team were sent to New York City in October 2012 to help in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
