Alternate Title: LLIS Notes from the Field: Hurricane Sandy and Disaster Networks: Key Observations, Good Practices, and Challenges - Observations from Rakesh Bharania, A Tactical Operations Support Engineer for a Major Telecommunications Company

This 'Notes from the Field' document contains the "Observations from Rakesh Bharania, a Tactical Operations Support Engineer For a Major Telecommunications Company." The author [Bharania] was deployed to the disaster area in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. From the Introduction: "My team and I recently returned from a deployment in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy where we worked to support public safety and disaster relief NGOs [non-governmental organizations] in the states of New York and New Jersey. This storm, regardless of what you want to call it ('Superstorm' seemed to be a popular moniker in the media, since the storm technically wasn't a hurricane when it made landfall) seemed to usher in a whole new wave of technology in disaster response, and I think it's worth trying to capture a few observations while the memories are still fresh and the after-action-reports are yet to be written. So, a standard disclaimer applies: this is really my own opinion, and not those of my teammates, or my employer."
