Hurricane Recovery

Just a few weeks after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Hurricane Rita also hit Louisiana.  The CCC sent eight crews (120 corpsmembers) to the Leesville, Louisiana area for several weeks to remove debris and help with cleanup and recovery.  The CCC was dispatched under an interstate mutual aid request; it was the farthest crews have traveled for emergency response efforts.
