Got a chance to work with the Florida National Guard today. Their tasks set by Florida Governor Scott was clear to support Floridians in disaster recovery. FEMA’s role has always been to support and coordinate actions of resources in disaster response and recovery.
Here’s FEMA LNO John Allen greeted Brig General Canzoneri at the Key West International Airport.
Military partnerships are critical in a successful mission…esp this one. Hurricane Irma was devastating for almost all commmunities in the Florida Keys. Glad to provide Federal support to this team.
We were able to see the Florida National Guard working hard to cleanup one of the residential houses from a disaster survivor. We witnessed first hand those dedicated soldiers were giving to so many communities throughout the Florida Keys.
Hole in the roof? Roof ops? No problem. The National Guard has you covered.
A quick talk from the TAG to the troops and thanking them for their efforts…
…as well as a few words of wisdom from other leadership attending today’s events.
…but the work continued on for the entire team.
A handshake from leadership goes a long way.
Proud of their efforts in so many communities in Florida. Each one of them giving their time away from home, away from family…just so they can help rebuild another family.
This is what any American would do when someone needs help.
Believe me when I say, I am so glad to be a small part of this team and to tell this story. Great people helping out great people. Straight up, this is America.
This is what we train for. This is why we prepare. This is what we do
