COLORADO SPRINGS – Colorado’s first responders are back home after helping out with tropical storm Florence.  Several agencies from the state sent help, including Colorado Springs firefighters from the State’s Task Force One.

The team helps out during life-saving operations and for them, it’s experience that they can bring home. Battalion Chief Kevin Bird says that he filled a role there that is likely a role he would fill here, so the experience was tremendous for not only him but the entire team.

The team worked in the Carolinas for a little more than two weeks.
