Washington National Guard helping first responders after winter storm
NORTH BEND, Wash. -- The Washington National Guard is helping first responders reach those hardest hit by the recent rash of winter storms. Soldiers and airmen are out assisting crews, using military vehicles in some cases, to help reach neighborhoods and homes. Fire station 87 in North Bend is a hub for activity, mostly because the conditions there remain some of the worst on the Eastside. Many of the side streets are still impassable, making it difficult for first responders to get help to those who need it most.
