Washington, D.C. – In a Friday statement, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., praised the swift response, hard work and persistence of residents dealing with the flooding in Fremont County this week and said the entire Wyoming delegation will work hard to make sure the area gets the support it needs.
“I want to thank the individuals who have been filling sandbags all week. I want to take this opportunity to commend the communities in Wyoming that have come together and worked so hard to respond to the flooding, to help protect each other’s homes, and whose willingness to step up and volunteer to help their neighbors really shows the true Wyoming spirit,” Enzi said.
“I want to thank everyone who has helped respond to this disaster for their hard work and persistence. They’ve truly demonstrated what it means to part of the Wyoming community. Our prayers are with everyone at this difficult time.”
Enzi also thanked the Wyoming National Guard which deployed 227 members to Fremont County to help serve the communities in need. Senator Barrasso and Representative Lummis are also working to make sure that Fremont County can get the support it needs.
“Wyoming is a big state, so I’m glad that we’ve always worked together to make sure we can get different jobs done in different places,” Enzi said.
