JB Charleston begins recovery operations after Hurricane Dorian

JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. (AFNS) --

Col. Terrence Adams, Joint Base Charleston commander, issued a recall for all recovery teams at 5:00 p.m., Sept 5.

Recovery teams will return to the base and work to ensure JB Charleston’s facilities, infrastructure and homes are safe for the return of its service members and families. Hurricane recovery teams are expected to begin travel back to JB Charleston as soon as possible, when it is safe to do so given the weather and road conditions from their safe haven location.

Personnel not specifically detailed to a hurricane recovery team are not authorized to return at this time. Separate guidance will direct the return for all additional personnel. After arriving, hurricane recovery team members will notify their commanders. The limited evacuation order, or LEO, still applies to individuals not assigned to a hurricane recovery team, including recovery team member dependents. Recovery teams should communicate with their chain of command to establish their reporting location upon their arrival in the Charleston area.

This order does not apply to personnel detailed to the Naval Information Warfare Center. NIWC personnel should follow guidance from the activity head.

Base leadership is assessing power outages and runway damages, and is working quickly to restore military and commercial airfield operations.

JB Charleston leadership extends their appreciation for the quick response of all recovery team personnel and emphasizes the importance of their efforts when preparing the base for a full personnel recall.
