Welcome home Colorado Task Force 1! The seven PFA firefighters that were deployed to Hurricane Dorian on Friday, Aug. 30 returned home last night. They were part of a 16 person Mission Ready Package that drove to Florida. They then followed the storm to Georgia and North Carolina, ready to respond where needed. They trained daily on pre-planning, equipment readiness and techniques – all skills they brought home to the community.
🎉They even made one birthday extra special. On the way to Ft. Bragg, NC, the team met Niceas who was celebrating his 9th birthday. His mother said that the task force helped people in his neighborhood, which flooded during Hurricane Florence last year. She asked if he could have a picture with the team and it was a welcomed addition to the fuel stop.
