Hurricane Ian
Rapid Response

Five days before Hurricane Ian made landfall, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) requested Merit deploy teams and technology to support the agency’s anticipated response. The next day, the first wave of Merit employees traveled to Florida, with more waiting on standby.

Before the hurricane even had a chance to make landfall, the Merit Tech Incident Management Team (IMT) was issuing badges and merits to hundreds of responders.
