News Releases

Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks (R-IN5) took to the House Floor today to recognize the outstanding efforts of Indiana’s first responders and emergency management officials during recent dangerous weather conditions:

“Thankfully, Hoosiers were able to rely on a coordinated and effective response from government officials, first responders, utility providers and volunteers.  They relied on our national guard which stepped up to assist in clearing roads. They relied on police officers and firefighters who went door to door. They relied on the Red Cross, which set up numerous emergency shelters. In Indianapolis, they relied on the Mayor’s Action Center, which took more than 10,000 calls to address concerns. It’s time like these when we’re reminded how much we rely on our emergency management people. We rely on them to be ready, and they always answer the call.”
