MEMA Offers Assistance to States along the East Coast in Advance of Hurricane Sandy

PEARL Mississippi Emergency Management Agency Director Robert Latham offers assistance to states along the U.S. East Coast which could be impacted by Hurricane Sandy this weekend or early next week.

Latham has communicated with more than a dozen emergency management directors whose states are in the forecast path of Sandy offering any support MEMA may be able to provide.

“I think it is important that as states prepare for the potential impacts from this storm that they know they are not alone,” said Latham.  “Preparation for a storm has a lot of moving parts and can be very complicated.  We have a tremendous amount of preparedness and response expertise in the state of Mississippi and I feel it is important to reach out and offer that support to those who may need it.”

Following Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, almost every state in the nation provided support with personnel and resources to the state of Mississippi.

“I will never forget the outpouring of support from the whole country after Katrina,” said Latham. “Offering our assistance is my way of letting them know we have not forgotten how they helped us make it through one of Mississippi’s toughest times.”

Sunday, MEMA Office of Response Director Tom McAllister will head to Washington D.C. to work in FEMA’s National Response Coordination Center for Hurricane Sandy.  McAllister will be working on behalf of the National Emergency Management Association and Emergency Management Assistance Compact.  He will be part of the EMAC Liaison Team at the NRCC.  EMAC is the tool used to provide assistance, support and resources from one state to another.

Since Hurricane Katrina personnel from MEMA have assisted several other states following natural disasters through EMAC including the 2008 flooding in Iowa, 2009 Kentucky ice storm and New York State in 2010 following Hurricane Irene.

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center in Miami predicts Sandy could make landfall somewhere from North Carolina to Connecticut sometime Monday or early Tuesday.
