Governor Scott Walker issued an executive order outlining the state of Wisconsin's response to hurricane relief efforts. 

Walker said in a statement,"We want to make sure our fellow Americans have the help and aid they need from our state as they recover from Hurricane Florence."  The governor's order authorizes the National Guard to activate some members to active duty, allows state employees who are certified Red Cross disaster relief volunteers to take a 30-day leave of absence to provide services in the Carolinas and Virgina, and suspends certain restrictions to help carriers transport vital emergency relief supplies more efficiently.  The Wisconsin National Guard already has four Blackhawk helicopters and two dozen crew members on standby status on the East Coast.
