When disaster strikes in the Pacific, once an affected nation asks for help the USARPAC Contingency Command Post’s Humanitarian Assistance Survey Team would be the first on the ground. The HAST’s job is to conduct assessments of key infrastructure in order to assist the host nation's government in getting relief supplies and other support into the country as quickly as possible. U.S. Army Pacific Soldiers are in Tonga this week taking part in “Coral Reef” a joint-multinational humanitarian assistance and disaster relief exercise primarily designed to test the USARPAC Contingency Command Post’s ability to react to a disaster. HAST personnel met with members of the Tonga National Emergency Management Office Monday, Sergeant First Class Kevin Bell Reports from Tongatapu, Kingdom of Tonga. Includes sound bites from Commander Ashley Fua, Assistant Superintendent, Tonga Police; Leveni Aho, Director, Tonga National Emergency Management Office; and Lt. Col. Gregory Brewer, CCP Medical Officer. Also available in high definition.
