#JeffcoFlood Colorado National Guard Here to Assist

We have Colorado National Guard Soldiers out in #JeffcoFlood areas to help with rescue and recovery efforts throughout the County.  This includes everything from sand bagging to getting residents and vehicles out of flooded areas.  The vehicle you see in these pictures is a Light Medium Tactical Vehicle.  Its main mission is to transport soldiers and cargo.  While here in Jefferson County, it can be taken off road, it's versatile and a high profile vehicle making it ideal for going into areas with deep flooding.  The vehicle is strong enough to tow a semi-truck.  So whatever is needed during flood recovery efforts, the Colorado National Guard is here to help.  We thank them for everything they do.
