I am currently leading the Title 10 response for NORTHCOM and ARNORTH in New York City and FEMA Regions 1 and 2. My Headquarters and I deployed to NYC on March 24th. Joint Task Force New York & New Jersey is providing command and control of federal Department of Defense active-duty forces within the states of New York and New Jersey in support of FEMA, the Lead Federal Agency, in COVID-19 response. This assistance is part of a whole-of-government response to the pandemic and is at the direction of U.S. Northern Command and U.S. Army North. TF-NY/NJ is filling three specific missions: 1) Provide medical professionals at field hospitals at the Javits New York Medical Station and Edison Field Medical Station in New Jersey; 2) Providing medical professionals to 11 New York City and two New Jersey hospitals; and 3) Providing mortuary affairs support in New York.
