GSA Chief Touts Agency’s Response to Hurricane Sandy
October 31, 2012
As Hurricane Sandy lashed New York City this week, employees from the General Services Administration braved the storm to open up the Brooklyn Courthouse to serve as a shelter for emergency workers.
GSA also provided the Federal Emergency Management Agency with 1,000 chainsaws to help with relief efforts in Pennsylvania and sent 34 shipments of generators, pumps and portable toilets to storm-affected areas, acting administrator Dan Tangherlini said in a blog post Wednesday.
He said more than 4,000 GSA employees teleworked while others inspected federal facilities or contributed to the agency’s Disaster Relief Program.
