Partnership enables JB Charleston sealift relief efforts to Puerto Rico
Longshoremen load the USNS Brittin (T-AKR-305) with 855 pieces of equipment Oct. 29, 2017, at Joint Base Charleston-Weapons Station, S.C. As the first shipment makes its way through the Atlantic Ocean, FEMA’s cargo receiving efforts continue at the installation support base here in preparation for future sealifts. As the recovery efforts continue, the deliveries will begin to shift from essentials to the equipment and supplies required to rebuild the damaged infrastructure.
