In reply to acknowledgement of the team’s efforts during National Preparedness month, NAF EM Team member, Chief Damage Controlman Alberto Rodriguez said, "Historically, we've seen many disasters happen and most of the people affected don't have plans in place to take care of themselves and their loved ones resulting in unnecessary hardships. We will be able to effectively focus on handling the situation at hand knowing we've planned and have the means to survive on our own for an extended amount of time until outside disaster assistance is up and running."
