Colorado Workers to Help Out

By  | 

More Colorado-based emergency workers are headed to hurricane-ravaged regions of the Southeast, hoping to help people communicate in areas where communication is nearly impossible.

One satellite response team departed Monday. A second crew left from the Federal Center in Lakewood Tuesday, and should arrive Wednesday.

The teams will set up operations on the outskirts of heavily-damaged areas, establishing communications via satellite for local officials.

The crews have taken satellite phones, as well as their own fuel.

They'll remain on duty there as long as needed.
