TULSA, Okla. - Officials with the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Lighthorse Police and Emergency Management are preparing to head to the Carolinas to help with Hurricane Florence relief efforts.
Ten officers from the police department and two people from Emergency Management are ready to go. They plan to leave as soon as they get the call from the Federal Emergency Management Agency that they are needed.
It’s the same team, with a few new members, that assisted with Hurricane Harvey relief in Texas.
Police Chief Robert Hawkins said there are just over 100 Muscogee Nation citizens living in the area.
The team will bring four-wheelers, boats, trailers and water suits.
