Xcel Energy Colorado will send crews to assist with power restoration. The power company said 22 vehicles and 38 employees will head to the hardest hit areas starting Wednesday.
A search and rescue team based in Colorado is also ready to head out and help in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
Around 80 members from FEMA's Urban Search and Rescue Colorado Task Force One are on standby. The task force is coordinated by West Metro Fire Rescue and includes members from more than a dozen area fire departments.
It's one of 28 such teams in the country. Nine teams have already been activated.
The storm left millions of people from Maine to the Carolinas without power and caused an estimated $50 billion in damages.
