17-093 Kansas National Guard supporting emergency response efforts for Hurrican Irma
 

Even as residents of the Gulf Coast sort out the pieces from Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma has begun to pummel Florida and work its way up the Eastern Coast. In response, the Kansas National Guard has mobilized a number of Guardsmen to assist with emergency response operations in Texas and Florida.

The 184th Intelligence Wing has deployed one person to support a mission in Austin, Texas. Ten more airmen from the 184th are on duty at McConnell Air Force Base, Wichita, to perform image analysis. One airman from the 184th is providing Public Affairs support to the Florida National Guard.

One soldier with the Kansas Army National Guard’s 105th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment is in Texas supporting the public affairs mission for the National Guard Bureau.

The 69th Troop Command logistics officer is also providing support to the National Guard Bureau.
The Kansas National Guard will continue to monitor events and stands ready to respond if tasked with new missions.
