Demobilization phase


1.     The National Guard will be demobilized first as the local agencies can handle the remaining tasks

a.      Most of the equipment the National Guard provides is secondary compared to those provided by state and local agencies and the private sectors. The National Guard is involved because the incident overwhelmed the local community resources.

Most remaining activities are within the capacity of local agencies, and the heavy deployment of National Guard personnel, equipment, and expertise is no longer required. National Guard is primarily equipped to help with rescue missions.

They are called for assistance when local departments do not have the capacity or expertise to work in extreme conditions. During demobilization, most rescue activities have been completed successfully, and rescue teams and crews from the National Guard are no longer needed.

b.     National Guard is also deployed to offer medical treatment and assistance. During demobilization, the Red Cross and local healthcare department will take over the duties assigned to the National Guard. National Guard medical and emergency personnel and equipment are no longer required hence the need for demobilization.

c.      Some state funding goes to the deployed National Guard Personnel, equipment, and expertise. The National Guard deployment is initially heavy to assist the overwhelmed local community resources. The demobilization of National Guards is necessary to reduce costs on unused resources. 

2.     Fire service and rescue personnel and equipment will be demobilized to home units

a.      Fire service and rescue personnel are deployed to protect life and property during the incidence. Their major task in the winter storm is to help in rescuing and protecting people in traffic and devastated homes and schools. With the high snowfall, most people are stuck in traffic. After a successful rescue mission, fire service and rescue personnel are no longer required, and other local agencies can take over.

b.     Fire service response resources are no longer required, and demobilization is necessary to reduce spending on unused resources. All fire service and rescue personnel have completed response objectives, and they are not necessarily required in the recovery period.

c.      Fire services equipment is also needed back in their home units to respond to others issues within the community. Timely demobilization of these resources ensures availability to respond to other emergencies. Early demobilization of fire service and personnel also ensures timely repair and replacement of equipment.  

3.     Gas company personnel are no longer needed after the release of heavy machines and equipment from the National Guard and Fire service

a.      Gas companies and suppliers are needed to operate heavy equipment and vehicles during rescue and relief missions. They are also required to generate electricity using generators in rescue shelters and relief centers. After the demobilization of the National Guard and Fire service equipment and vehicles, less gas is required, hence the need to demobilize gas supplies and personnel.

b.     Electricity company personnel will take over power issues, and local community gas stations can be used for refueling. There is no need for the deployment of gas suppliers on the ground since refueling is not instantaneous. Local electricity personnel was overwhelmed to ensure electricity supplies in the affected area. During the aftermath, the demand is less, and they can effectively supply electricity to affected areas and restore destroyed poles and power lines.

c.      Restoration involves returning to normal, and gas suppliers should return to their stations to serve the locals. Gas supply vehicles and personnel will not be necessary for the aftermath.
