Monument staff to assist with hurricane relief

Scotts Bluff National Monument staff will be leaving on various hurricane relief assignments beginning today (Saturday). Monument Superintendent Ken Mabery says because this is an emergency, they do not have a clear indication of how many employees will be called to respond, how long they will be gone, or even full knowledge of their assignments.

Mabery says a substantial number of staff have been called for these assignments and that the usual length of time for this type of emergency is 14 to 21 days.

Mabery says because of the loss of staff for an undetermined time, there may be a slight disruption in services. He says "The staff are happy and proud to be called to help reduce the loss and suffering of the victims of urricane Sandy. We hope visitors to the Monument will understand our desire to help those in need and overlook any temporary inconvienance that this causes."
