Hurricane Sandy Support

On October 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy came ashore along the central New Jersey coast, impacting 12 eastern states and the District of Columbia. BIA NIFC is engaged with the Hurricane Support activities through the ESF4 (firefighting) function. 23 Mission Assignments have been received to date, which outline the scope of work and assignment tasks.

At its peak, BIA has 122 resources assigned to Hurricane Sandy Support through the Resource and Ordering Statusing System (ROSS). These resources were involved in saw work clearing roads, monitoring security, working in emergency operations centers to mobilize and demobilize resources, and supporting handcrews and crew representatives or crew supervisors.

The below resources are intended to facilitate the prompt payment of BIA/ Tribal resources assigned to support Hurricane Sandy.
