Kansas Guard To Help In Colorado

KSAL StaffOctober 15, 2013

About 75 engineers from the Kansas National Guard are heading to Colorado this week to help rebuild highways damaged by massive flooding.

The Kansans expect to leave for Boulder on Wednesday and remain in Colorado for 18 days.

The units supplying Kansas Guard members include the 891st Engineer Battalion based in Iola, the 226th Engineer Company from Augusta and the 242nd Engineer Company of Coffeyville.

Also participating are members of the 772nd Engineer Company based in Pittsburg, the 190th Air Refueling Wing Civil Engineering Squadron from Topeka and the 184th Intelligence Wing Civil Engineering Squadron in Wichita.

The Kansas National Guard has sent personnel to other states in past years to battle forest fires and help with hurricane recovery.
