Another busy night for first responders dealing with flash flooding

(Jefferson County) The Hillsboro Fire Protection District was kept busy early Thursday morning responding to mutual aid calls dealing flash flooding in northern portions of Jefferson County.

Hillsboro fire Chief Brian Gaudet says their first call came in around 12:30am to assist Saline Valley Fire Protection District with a water rescue.

Chief Gaudet adds they were involved in multiple other calls throughout the morning.

Last week the Hillsboro Fire Protection District was one of many agencies part of a Jefferson County strike team that assisted first responders in St. Louis City and County when the record flash flooding occurred.

According to Chief Gaudet, a strike team from St. Louis County was called in to assist first responders in northern Jefferson County during Thursday morning’s flash flood.
