    Safe access routes, electricity, drinking water, and sanitation are all essential in the aftermath of a disaster. Less instinctual, yet every bit as essential to long-term recovery, is minimizing damage to wildlife and natural resources during the restoration of critical infrastructure. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, under a mission assignment from FEMA, deployed hundreds of first responders to construct emergency access routes, demolish damaged structures, provide temporary, protective tarps for exposed roofs, and remove and dispose of debris after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. FEMA also directed USACE to provide temporary emergency power to critical facilities and later assigned USACE the largest emergency power restoration mission, in U.S. history, in support of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. Included among the first responders are environmental science and management professionals who inspect power restoration project sites daily to assess compliance with environmental regulations including the Clean Water, Endangered Species and Fish and Wildlife Coordination Acts.

  2. Corps Talk: Listen, Learn & Lead (S3:E2)

    In this episode, we’re talking about leadership – the good, the bad and the habits of both. Andie kicks it off with the Norfolk District’s Leadership Development Program by asking about the pathways to leadership, lessons learned and a few good stories. In the second segment (00;31;00), we catch up with Mike Anderson, Norfolk District Operations Branch, Design Section chief, outside in Fort Norfolk to get the latest on his team’s top project (hint, it’s the Norfolk Harbor Deepening). While Andie and Mike are talking, they touch on the topic of leadership styles and how Mike keeps his engineers engaged and resilient – especially during the most challenging projects. https://www.facebook.com/NAOonFB https://twitter.com/norfolkdistrict https://nao.usace.army.mil https://www.nao.usace.army.mil/Media/CorpsTalk/ https://www.usace.army.mil/Media/News-Archive/Story-Article-View/Article/2398266/leadership-development-program-grows-leaders-at-all-levels/#:~:text=LDP%20is%20a%20USACE%20program,each%20with%20different%20focus%20areas.
