Two hurricanes hit the Louisiana and Texas coast within 72 hours of each other. The storm surge and rainfall from one storm is typically 6-8 feet and 5-6 inches, respectfully. Two storms back to back were catastrophic in the sense that storm surge added up to 12 or 15 feet and rain topped 8 inches or more when it was all said and done. Towns like Lake Charles and Cameron (and others with weaker levies) will be submerged for another week, if not longer.
Extreme storm surge in many areas along the Gulf coast region between New Orleans, Louisiana and Beaumont, Texas. Flooding in this area (from two hurricanes back-to-back) are sure to overwhelm levies and sewer systems for an extended periods of time. Low and high water rescue will be needed for days. As well, street clearance teams are needed.
This project will provide basic ground rescue operations via low water extraction, street clearance (and debris removal) for the necessary time frame until counties get back to normal operations. Our team will be extracting from neighborhoods to relieve Coast Guard and county efforts. Also to be noted we will only be administering lighter First Aid techniques where applicable. (Stabilization methods)
In the long term these capabilities of our team will ease the burden on police and sheriff's calls. Working in conjunction with them, they will now be able to focus on more dire calls.
