CHEYENNE (AP) -- Five Wyoming National Guard helicopters have been activated to help with the flood response in Colorado.
Gov. Matt Mead has activated UH-60 Black Hawks and their 20 crew members on Saturday.
The guard members were activated through a national mutual aid partnership agreement that allows state-to-state assistance.
The crew of each helicopter consists of a medic, crew chief and two pilots.
The UH-60s are part of the Charlie Company, 5th Battalion, 159th Aviation Regiment with the Wyoming Army National Guard.
