Hello Coast Survey,
Our response effort following Hurricane Michael came to a close last week. Our navigation response teams (NRT) trailered their vessels and traveled to their home ports, our navigation manager helped close the Maritime Transportation System Recovery Unit (MITRSU), and our augmenting personnel returned to their respective homes. I am proud to say we have another emergency hydrographic response effort under our belt. I would like to thank everyone involved, particularly those in the field:
I am always amazed by our teams’ adaptability and resourcefulness during these response efforts. With communication infrastructure down following the storm, the teams were still able to deliver our hydrographic survey data to the MITSRU, allowing them to make critical decisions regarding navigation safety.
Job well done!
