Matt Dodd, a volunteer firefighter with the Central Callaway Fire Protection District, is in Joplin volunteering to help with rescue operations for tornado victims.

Greg Luebbert, chief of the Central Fire Protection District, said Dodd was visiting a friend in the Joplin area when the tornado struck.
