FEMA trucks parked on I-440 on-ramp are not what they seem

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) - Several trucks with “FEMA” written on them have been periodically parked on the side of an on-ramp to Interstate-440.

The trucks have been spotted off Wake Forest Road as you turn onto I-440 westbound. .

Several viewers have reached out to CBS 17 wondering why the trucks have been staged in that area.

FEMA often stages supplies in certain areas in order to be deployed to help with disaster relief.

CBS 17 found out the trucks are not owned by FEMA, but they’re owned by a local company named Russell Enterprises, out of Smithfield.

The trucks have “FEMA” written on them because they often assist FEMA with disaster relief efforts, according to an employee.

The employee says the trucks have been parked on the side of the on-ramp recently because the North Carolina Department of Transportation hired them to do some debris pickup and cleanup in the area.
