Indiana is sending additional public safety personnel to the East Coast
in response to Hurricane Sandy and the winter storm that followed.
Incident Management Assistance Team is being deployed to replace the
existing team in the City of Long Beach. The team will be split into two
groups. One will manage the incident. The other will assist with
donation and volunteer coordination.
The 37-person team includes
public safety professionals from IDHS, Indiana University, IDHS
Districts 1, 2, 5, 8, 9, and 10, Indiana Department of Natural Resources
and Indiana State Police.
The IMAT deployed earlier was due to begin returning home Sunday, Nov. 11.
