The activation started at 5 a.m. with staff from PEMA, the departments of Health, Human Services, Environmental Protection, Transportation, and Military and Veterans Affairs, PA Fish and Boat Commission, the PA State Police and the American Red Cross.
The CRCC coordinates the deployment of state agency resources to counties that do not have the capability to respond as needed, or have exhausted all available resources at the county level. The State Incident Management Team is on standby to deploy to any county to assist with recovery coordination and PEMA liaisons are en route to affected counties.
