Whenever and wherever disaster strikes, many federal, state and local agencies rely upon the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to provide an extensive range of expertise:
- Engineering and construction support
- Debris management
- Critical infrastructure assessment
- Temporary repairs
- Temporary housing or facilities installation, and
- Commodities (typically ice and water) and associated distribution systems assistance.
The Corps stands ready in any disaster to execute a broad portfolio of missions in order to sustain lives, support critical infrastructure needs and set conditions for recovery.
