Sep 19, 2013

The American Red Cross of New Hampshire has deployed two workers to aid in the aftermath of the Colorado floods.

Ian Dyer, Red Cross New Hampshire’s Regional Disaster and Program Officer, and Disaster Mental Health Volunteer Mary McCrae left for Colorado Thursday morning.

Dyer is sharing updates from his deployment on a blog.

“This deployment to Colorado is going to have its unique challenges,” he writes. “Indeed, every disaster relief operation is different, and with the significance of flooding in this is area it will continue to be a challenge to ensure successful delivery.”

The American Red Cross has deployed more than 760 trained disaster workers to the region to provide food, shelter and relief supplies.

Nearly 400 people stayed in 14 shelters Wednesday night.
