Hanscom helps with disaster response

HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – Two CH-47F Chinooks are guided into position on the flightline Oct. 31. The helicopters and their crew members are at Hanscom as part of the USNORTHCOM Defense Support of Civil Authorities mission that directs the command to plan and anticipate action that it may need to take to support civil authorities. USNORTHCOM plays an important role in disaster response; however, all efforts for Hurricane Sandy are in support of FEMA, working closely with state and local officials.
