St. Cloud firefighters head to North Carolina to assist with hurricane evacuations

On Tuesday, two members of the St. Cloud Fire Rescue

Department deployed to North Carolina to assist with evacuation efforts ahead of Hurricane Florence’s landfall.

Firefighter/Paramedic Craig Bronson and Firefighter/EMT Ryan Broomell stepped up and volunteered for the deployment. They are one of 25 crews from Florida heading to North Carolina to help the more than 1.5 million people who were ordered to evacuate along the southeast coast. Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall Thursday night near the North Carolina-South Carolina border.
