To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Records regarding FEMA's rescue and recovery response to Hurricane Florence and related events in September 2018, including but not limited to the activation dates and times for Search and Rescue Task Force Teams and Incident Support Teams deployed during the incident; and a full listing of each team's orders, movements and locations during the full course of the deployment, as well as action reports completed by team leaders for each individual team deployed during the incident.
If you determine that any portion or portions of this request cannot be fulfilled as promptly as any other portion of this request, we ask that you first fulfill whatever portion of this request you can fulfill within 20 business days and then fulfill the remainder of the request as promptly as possible.
We are happy to work with your office to make this request as simple as possible and eliminate unnecessary work. Please contact us before you incur labor costs or the use of information technology resources beyond those that your agency has already established for reproduction of the information requested. We can probably find an efficient solution that serves the public interest while minimizing your effort.
If it is your position that any portion of the requested records is exempt from disclosure, we request that you provide it with an index of those documents as required under Vaughn v. Rosen, 484 F.2d 820 (D.C. Cir. 1973), cert. denied, 415 U.S. 977 (1972).
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, we would be grateful if you would inform us of the total charges in advance of fulfilling our request. We would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.
We look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
We are in receipt of your request below, however we will need a name in order for us to log and process your request. Please respond within seven days or this request will be administratively closed. Thank you.
