Will Oversee Command/Control Of Air Force Assets
Air Forces Northern officials are deploying an air component
coordination element to support firefighting operations in Southern
California, USAF officials tell ANN.
The air component coordination element, or ACCE, is an Air Force
team designed to perform the command and control function for Air
Force assets supporting the efforts.
When the Federal Emergency Management Agency requested Defense
Department resources to help with the relief operations in Southern
California, AFNORTH officials sent the eight-person element to
coordinate any airlift, aeromedical evacuation, medical support,
aerial assessment and civil engineering capabilities as needed.
"Like all citizens, we are saddened by the loss of life and
property," said Maj. Gen. Henry C. "Hank" Morrow, the AFNORTH
commander. "America's Air Force has answered the call for
assistance to the California wildfire crisis. Our folks are working
long hours to help Americans in need."
"Defense support to civil authorities is a total team and
interagency effort," said Brig. Gen. Robert O. Tarter, the ACCE
team commander. "We coordinate all Air Force capabilities for the
task force, and work directly with civilian experts to support
their operations. Due to the cooperation of military and civil
authorities we will be able to save lives and mitigate property
The ACCE is helping to provide critical Air Force assistance in
areas needing it most; delivering essential supplies, conducting
vital command and control of rescues and evacuation of survivors
from the disaster area.
