Otterbein United Methodist Church member Gary Wright was aware of the good works another congregation performed with its emergency response trailer and wanted his church to pursue a similar program. Little did he know that within half a year and at less than $100 cost to his church's council, his $12,000 project of assembling a trailer would become a reality. “You make the thing and hope that you never have to use it,” Wright, 61, of Hagerstown, said Monday. The Rev. Stephen Robison, Otterbein's pastor, said Wright “spearheaded a task force to look at the trailer and equipment cost and offering training.” Wright found inspiration in his brother, Cliff Wright, who served as a member of an emergency response team from Mount Nebo United Methodist Church in Boonsboro.
