WASHINGTON — FEMA is leaning forward with our federal, state, local and tribal partners to support a state managed, locally executed response to impacts from Hurricane Delta and is supporting Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and affected community leaders on necessary damage assessments.

Three Urban Search and Rescue Teams and an Incident Support Team are conducting operations in Louisiana, and Mobile Emergency Operations Vehicles are standing by to provide emergency communication capabilities for federal resources, if needed.

As of yesterday, 470 FEMA responders are deployed in support of Hurricane Delta, including Incident Management Assistance Teams.  Additional personnel from the federal government, including the Department of Defense, Department of Transportation, Health and Human Services, Department of Energy, DHS Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency and Army Corps of Engineers, have been mission assigned to provide support to impacted states and tribes, as needed.
