Joint, interagency partners establish ISB for hurricane relief efforts

Eleanor Van Cleve and Joseph Alem, Federal Emergency Management Agency transportation managers, review paperwork of inbound cargo Oct. 21. FEMA and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency established an initial staging area where items are received, inspected and measured. Once the cargo arrives, it will be sent to Puerto Rico by air or sea. The primary mode of transportation for this mission is by sea, but if perishable or urgent items arrive at the staging area, they can be sent to Joint Base Charleston’s aerial port to be flown to their destination within hours. Transporting cargo by air has the added benefit of being able to land hundreds of miles from the shore.
