NETL employees were on hand to facilitate power restoration as Hurricane Dorian threatened the East Coast in recent weeks. Three employees were deployed to regions expecting impacts from Dorian ahead of the hurricane’s arrival, while a fourth employee provided virtual assistance. All four employees contribute their time and expertise as part of the Emergency Support Function (ESF) #12 program, which aids the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as part of the United States National Response Framework. NETL supports ESF #12 by maintaining a team of regional coordinators who cover FEMA regions spanning 36 states in the continental United States, plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The participating employees primarily belong to NETL’s Energy Technology Development Directorate, with one from the Energy Conversion Engineering Directorate. In response to Dorian, these four joined other officials at regional response coordination centers for FEMA Regions II, III and IV and state emergency operations centers in Florida and North Carolina, where they served as Energy Unit Leaders.
