    FLORIDA NATIONAL GUARD READIES ALL RESOURCES

    ST. AUGUSTINE, FL, UNITED STATES

    St. Augustine, Fla. (Nov. 9, 2022) - With the oncoming threat of Tropical Storm Nicole, Governor Ron DeSantis has signed an emergency order, preparing the Florida National Guard to activate its troops.
    Approximately 600 Florida National Guard (FLNG) Soldiers and Florida Air National Guard personnel stand in preparation for oncoming landfall. This danger comes after the state's recent relief effort with Hurricane Ian. Now, soldiers must handle the looming Tropical Storm Nicole, preparing once again with little time left for the storm to arrive.
    FLNG Soldiers with the Joint Directorate of Military Support (JDOMS) out of St. Augustine, Fla., oversee the valuable exchange of resources between units as the state prepares for landfall. Before any aid can disperse, these logistics soldiers must coordinate needed supplies such as water, food, lodging, and fuel. Without this aid, our soldiers would not be capable of operating with 100% efficiency.
    "We are responsible for bringing all entities together for supporting and tracking the response effort," said Lt. Col Tina Madavoy, deputy J3 operations for the Joint Directorate of Military Support (JDOMS). "Readiness is always a factor."
    In this setting, subject matter experts from different logistical backgrounds come together to provide the most up-to-date resources on the relief mission. They use the incoming data to communicate with units out in the field, providing them the most timely information so that the mission can be completed.
    "It never ceases to amaze me how quickly our Florida National Guard soldiers and airmen can be," said Lt. Col. Sam Sargent, J3 operations for JDOMS. "We ask a lot, and we just came from Hurricane Ian, so I appreciate the hard work and sacrifice these Soldiers and Airmen give."
