American Hero Warren C. Evans

Sheriff Warren C. Evans led a convoy of six tractor-trailers, three rental trucks and 33 deputies despite a plea fro Governor M. Granhold to wait for a formal request. As stated in the New York times, Evans said, "I could look at CNN and see people dying, and I couldn't in g0ood conscience wait for a coordinated response." By the 3rd of September the Michigan team was conducting search and rescue operations.

Meanwhile, as stated in the same article,

"Hundreds of firefighters, who responded to a nationwide call for help in the disaster, were held up by the federal agency in Atlanta for days of training on community relations and sexual harassment before being sent to the devastated area."
