Nebraska Members Hit Hard by FloodingIn the aftermath of the bomb cyclone that swept across Nebraska, bringing blizzard conditions, heavy rain and flooding, at least nine IAFF members’ homes are damaged or destroyed, with more expected as flood waters continue to rise. “Our thoughts are with our members as they continue to respond to calls in the aftermath of this storm while perhaps not knowing the condition of their own homes,” says General President Harold Schaitberger. “The IAFF is offering the full extent of its resources to assist our members.” “The 2nd District team has been reaching out to affiliate leaders to assess membership needs and to provide assistance as quickly as possible,” says 2nd District Vice President Mark Woolbright. “We are already beginning to process disaster reliefapplications and I am encouraging any member who has incurred damage to his or her home to contact me.” Nebraska Professional Fire Fighters Association (NPFFA) President Darren Garrean says, “Because some of our members are currently unable to reach their homes due to the high water, it could be several more days before we know the full impact of this storm on our members.” Meanwhile, the NPFFA continues to provide assistance as needs arise. The eastern side of the state is the hardest hit. Fremont Local 1015, Columbus Local 1575, Norfolk Local 1005 and Omaha Local 385 members are reporting the most damage. In Fremont, flood waters were so high at one point that all the streets entering and leaving the city were impassable. Local 1015 members have been busy rescuing stranded citizens by boat. On Thursday, March 14, a crew of seven were on their way to a rescue when their boat capsized. Members of Local 1015 were in the water for more than 30 minutes before being pulled out by a helicopter. None experienced any serious injuries. The total number of rescues across the state so far is unknown, but there are reports of more than 200 citizen rescues in Douglas County alone, which includes Omaha. “I’m so proud of the professionalism and dedication to duty our members have displayed in the aftermath of this storm,” says Garrean. “Even our affected members have reached out to me asking how they can help.” Meanwhile, the western part of the state experienced blizzard-like conditions. Winds and visibility made it impossible for members to respond to emergency calls until the conditions subsided. Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts called the flooding the “most widespread disaster we have had in our state’s history.” Seventy-four cities, 65 counties and four tribal areas have issued emergency declarations.
