Oregon State Fire Marshal Incident Management Team hurricane response and recovery
On September 28, 2022 13 incident management team (IMT) members from Oregon State Fire Marshal (OSFM) sent to Florida to help with Hurricane Ian response and recovery returned home Thursday evening, October 13. The team was in Hardee County, Florida for two weeks and helped emergency managers and the sheriff’s office with logistics, planning, communication, and other tasks.
Hardee County was hit hard with flooding. The storm knocked out power to 99% of the county and the damage to the community was severe.
Working alongside their partners in Florida, the team was able to help coordinate recovery and put communities on a successful path forward. We are proud of this team and their dedication to helping others.
