Four local firefighters have returned safe and sound from
hurricane-devastated Louisiana. Hulett thanked the Logan County fire
chiefs, saying that this was a shared effort supported under county
and state mutual aid agreements. The chief thanked the men who went
and the city council for their support and the opportunity to go
down and help our neighbors to the south.
Assistant Chief Tom Martin and Darrin Coffee went from the city
of Lincoln. Assistant Chief Andy Dexter and Ryan Sheley went from
Lincoln Rural Fire Department.
A search was rapidly organized near the airport in Lincoln on
Tuesday. An elderly woman was reported as missing for about an hour
when authorities were notified. Concerns were that she would go into
the cornfields and get lost, Hulett said. Just to be on the safe
side we had nine local, county and state agencies either actively
helping us or en route to provide us with support, including a state
airplane to search the cornfields, he said.
The woman was found safe in the Mayfair subdivision, not far from
where she'd walked away from about an hour after the search began.
"So, we had a good outcome there," he said.
