Team deploying to Kentucky
The Hampton Roads Incident Management Team (HRIMT) based in Chesapeake VA is mobilizing to deploy to assist the Commonwealth of Kentucky with the aftermath of the deadly tornadoes which struck earlier this month. The HRIMT is deploying the following members and equipment.

1 – Firefighter from the Newport News Fire Department as a Planning Section Specialist/Trainee
1 – Disaster Assistance Specialist from the Chesapeake Fire Department as a Logistics Section Chief

Members will be departing from the Chesapeake Public Safety Operations Center (PSOC) at 0800 on Thursday December 30, 2021.



The deployment of the HRIMT will be part of a blended Incident Management Team (IMT) from Virginia. The eight members of the deployed Virginia Blended IMT will be from the following organizations.



Hampton Roads Incident Management Team based out of Chesapeake VA
National Capital Incident Management Team based out of Fairfax County VA
Central Virginia Incident Management Team based out of Chesterfield County VA
Virginia Department of Emergency Management


The Virginia IMT is initially being set to the Kentucky Emergency Operations Center in Frankfort. From there the blended team may be sent to either Graves County, Hopkins County, Marshall County, or be held at the State Emergency Operations Center. The final team assignment will depend upon the need for Incident Management assistance as identified by Kentucky when the Virginia team arrives.



In addition to personnel, the HRIMT will be providing logistical, communications, and IT equipment. This will provide the blended VA team with cellular and satellite communications, computers, printers, large plotter/printers, office facilities, etc. The Blended team will have the technical ability to set up a fully functioning emergency operations center or forward operations base as needed without any outside communications or IT support.



The deployment team is expected to return to Chesapeake on Friday, January 14, 2022.

With major search and rescue operations complete the team operating in Pender County will demobilize tomorrow morning after the transition briefing. Although many areas of the county remain under water and isolated, the citizens and infrastructure are no longer in peril. The Emergency Management staff will transition into the long recovery process. Based on the resiliency, pride and determination of the citizens and employees of the county, we have no doubt that Pender County will rebuild and fully recover from this devastating event.

The team would like to thank the members of Pender County Emergency Management, Pender Fire and EMS and the countless community members for the hospitality. We look forward to returning for the NC Blueberry Festival in June.

Attached is a press release regarding information from the tornado that spawned during Tropical Cyclone Isaias. We have been very busy working with those affected that have reached out to us alongside our partners with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the Hampton Roads Incident Management Team. Our Community Emergency Response Team Lancaster County CERT, has been on the ground collecting information with members of the Red Cross to assess community needs and provide assistance. We cannot thank these volunteers and their coordinator enough for taking the time to accomplish the mission. We have made a lot of face to face contact with those affected, but if we have not seen you yet, please reach out to us with any questions or assistance that you may need using the information provided in the press release. We were overwhelmed with the way that the community came together and were there for one another in their time of need. The White Stone Volunteer Fire Department, Kilmarnock Volunteer Fire Department Inc., Upper Lancaster Volunteer Fire Department, Kilmarnock-Lancaster Volunteer Rescue Squad, Virginia State Police, Lancaster County Virginia Sheriff's Office, Kilmarnock Police Department, Lancaster County Emergency Services alongside the Virginia Department of Transportation and Dominion Energy came together to provide a great initial response. They worked many hours to gain access to residents and insure everyone was accounted for and all medical and immediate needs were met. We are continuing to work on future planning for the recovery of this event and will push out more information as it develops.
Check out this video from our Incident Commander, Lee Williams, about what the Virginia blended Incident Management Team has been working on!

While Dorian spent the day making landfall in the Bahamas, our team continued to research, develop plans, and train— especially with our new friends from The University of Oklahoma! Our Incident Commander even presented them with team challenge coins. We’re so grateful for this new partnership.

What did you do last night? Oh no big deal, but we had a discussion with fellow hotel guests who happened to be Meteorology PhD candidates at The University of Oklahoma. They spoke about OU Shared Mobile Atmospheric Research and Teaching (SMART) Radar Trucks and their work with NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory. 🧐

Where our logos and initials might be different, the common fiber throughout our blended VA IMT is the desire to help whenever and wherever needed.
