Nebraska Task Force One returns to Lincoln
LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Nebraska Task Force One returned to Lincoln from Puerto Rico Sunday morning at around 7:30 a.m.
The 45 members were deployed on Monday. The fallout from Hurricane Fiona has caused widespread issues in Puerto Rico, knocking out all of the island’s power and causing catastrophic damage.
The task force was there to get people to safety.
The team, mostly firefighters in eastern Nebraska, deployed with a doctor, structural engineer and several K9′s flying out of Lincoln. They had never flown for a deployment outside of the continental United States.
