United States. Government Publishing Office
This hearing testimony is from the June 10, 2015 hearing on "Defense Support of Civil Authorities: A Vital Resource in the Nation's Homeland Security Missions" held before the House Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Martha McSally: "Today's hearing will examine the vital role played by the military in these homeland defense missions. So far this year we have seen record snowfalls, destructive tornados, massive flooding around the country. Last week marked the start of the 2015 hurricane season, and in areas out West, including my home State of Arizona, we are gearing up for what is predicted to be an above-average wildfire season as well. In such emergencies, defense personnel and assets act as flexible force multipliers to the response. When activated by a Governor, a State's National Guard can provide, on short notice, search and rescue, logistics, firefighting, and law enforcement support. Federal military forces may also supplement State capabilities." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Robert J. Fenton, Jr., Robert G. Salesses, Joseph E. Whitlock, Joseph W. Kirschbaum, Michael T. McGuire, Jimmy J. Gianato, and Peter T. Gaynor.
