For the first time in JetBlue history, our Red Cross Ready Team in New York deployed to a city that we don’t fly to last week to support rescue efforts due to flooding in North Dakota. The Missouri River Basin elevation has been rising in North Dakota’s capital city of Bismarck following the melting of a late and unexpected snowstorm, and threatens to chase more than 16,000 residents from their homes. Our six participating Crewmembers – spanning various workgroups – will remain in North Dakota for two weeks, returning on Friday, June 17. They will support the onsite logistics operation.
A big shout-out to our Crewmembers for participating in this very important mission. This speaks volumes to how JetBlue is willing to support our fellow Americans in crisis. Here’s to living the values!
