Colorado and Wyoming Sends DOZENS of Responders to Support Hurricane Efforts

Employees and Volunteers continue to head towards the East Coast to prepare and provide care in impacted areas of Hurricane Dorian

More than 45 members of the American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming have traveled east to support impacted and potentially impacted areas of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The Colorado and Wyoming region have also deployed three of its five Emergency Response Vehicles to provide food, water, and supplies to individuals in impacted areas.

Tuesday night, more than 9,000 people stayed in 140 Red Cross and community evacuation shelters in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. While the focus of the storm is shifting away from Florida, the Red Cross continues coordinating with partners to support evacuation centers in South Carolina and North Carolina.

More than 1,900 trained Red Cross responders from all over the country are helping to support relief efforts, with more expected to arrive as the storm hits the United States.
