On Wednesday, the Little Elm Fire Department gave an update on the humanitarian response it is giving to victims of Hurricane Ida.
“We still have our Little Elm firefighters deployed in South Louisiana,” the department said in a social media post. “Our guys have been assigned to a damaged fire station at an airport. They found the flag under the rubble and have it proudly raised on the pole. They said it will be raised and lowered daily as long as they are there.”
In the wake of the Category 4 hurricane, which dissipated on Sept. 4, Little Elm Fire Department sent four of its personnel to Louisiana as part of the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System.
