Buckley and FEMA assist in Colorado flood relief

The Federal Emergency Management Agency began staging operations out of Buckley Air Force Base, Colo., Sept. 14, 2013, after Gov. John Hickenlooper declared a national emergency and President Barack Obama approved federal support. Since then, FEMA has sent out nearly 50 trucks loaded with meals, water, cots and blankets, as well as many other needed materials. In addition, they have assembled 10 mobile communications office vehicles to help set up disaster centers in affected areas. Major flood relief efforts became necessary after up to 15 inches of rain fell along the Front Range causing flash flooding, according to weather services. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
