The decision to send the crews was taken swiftly, as Brownsville City officials recognized the need for immediate response to help the affected residents in their medical emergencies, cleanup, and recovery efforts. The crews focused on providing medical attention, transporting victims to local hospitals, clearing debris, assessing damage, and assisting residents as needed.
