Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) announced on Friday that he will send additional firefighters to California as the West Coast state battles an onslaught of wildfires that have threatened thousands of residents and diminished air quality across the state.
“Texas is ready to answer the call for help when disaster strikes — whether it’s here in the Lone Star State or across the country,” said Governor Abbott in a Friday statement. “I thank the brave men and women serving in our fire departments across Texas for stepping up to help Californians in need as these fires continue to burn. I ask all Texans to join me and Cecilia in prayer for the courageous firefighters battling these wildfires, as well as those who have been affected by this disaster.”
Texas is providing firefighters and equipment to help California battle the raging fires that are causing such devastating damages.
