Kentucky stands prepared to help Florida in the wake of Hurricane Ian.  
 
The Kentucky National Guard is providing five UH-60 Blackhawks with aircrews to assist the Florida National Guard with search and rescue operations.  
 
They are the same aircrews that provided lifesaving operations during the Eastern Kentucky flooding in July.  
 
Airmen and units from the Kentucky Air National Guard remain on standby to assist.  
 
Requests for assistance so far include the Governor authorizing the three C-130 aircraft and 22 personnel to assist Florida as needed.

The state-of-the-art transports are among eight the wing will receive over the next 11 months to replace eight aging C-130 H-model aircraft, which entered service in 1992 and have seen duty all over the world.
