Johanns Statement on Niobrara Wildfires


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today issued the following statement on the North Central Nebraska wildfires:

"This summer's drought has adversely affected nearly every Nebraskan and is now exacerbating the wildfires in the Niobrara River Valley. My thoughts are with those who have been displaced, who have lost homes, or whose livelihoods are being threatened. I also want to join every Nebraskan in thanking the firefighters, National Guard and other emergency responders for their dedicated, tireless service as they work to extinguish this blaze.

"I am closely monitoring the situation and in contact with the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency and county officials. If additional federal assistance is required, I'm ready to ensure that aid is delivered quickly and efficiently."

So far, the fire has consumed at least 50,000 acres in Keya Paha, Brown and Cherry counties. Johanns, earlier this month, sponsored a resolution recognizing the heroic efforts of firefighters and military personnel working to contain the numerous wildfires across the country.
