UPDATE: Nebraska Task Force 1 sent to help with Hurricane Florence
Nebraska Task Force 1 is staging in Hope Mills, North Carolina, as Hurricane Florence batters the coast.
The group, made up of first responders from Grand Island, Lincoln, Omaha, Beatrice, Papillion, and Council Bluffs, Iowa, is no stranger to situations like this. Last year, they were deployed for Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The Nebraska Task Force 1 was activated as a type 3 task force to help with Hurricane Florence last Tuesday night.
NETF1 tweeted Tuesday night pictures of "Huskers from the Heartland Heading toward Hurricane".
