  • Teamwork and Technology: Game changers for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

    Teamwork is the cohesive bond which unites the Corps. Whether it be engineering solutions or disaster response. This year’s hurricane season tested the USACE’s mission set of supporting the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA. The Corps assists FEMA’s emergency support function #3 (ESF-3) mission by providing services, technical assistance, engineering expertise, construction management and other support functions to prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters or incidents. Hurricane Florence in early September provided the conduit for the Corps to come together and provide not only boots-on-the-ground assistance, but to offer their technological expertise. Geographic information systems (GIS) and the USACE’s Modeling, Mapping and Consequences Production Center (MMC) were two entities that the Corps utilized during this year’s hurricane season.
