Branch Davidian Incident

When the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) attempted to execute a search warrant at the Branch Davidian Ranch outside Waco, Texas in 1993, a gun battle erupted that left four agents and six Branch Davidian followers dead. Fires broke out in the compound that took the lives of 76 Branch Davidian followers.

BCFS EMD was called in to provide shelter for the women and children who fled the compound.
