On Thursday the 19th of September the City of Colorado Springs opened a Disaster Assistance Center (DAC) for the residents along the Cheyenne Creek affected by the Southern Colorado floods. We were invited to be in the DAC and work with affected residents as they came in for help. By the end of the first day the incoming included people from all over the city and people from Manitou Springs. We did intake at the DAC Thursday the 19th of September through Monday the 23rd of September. During this time we wrote 32 work orders. We started to assess the work orders Friday the 20th of September and were able to start to work on the first work order Monday the 23rd. We wrote another 8 work orders after the DAC closed.
Response work performed during the southern Colorado floods included mudout, clearing debris, pumping out basements, and cleanup.
