New York, N.Y., Jul. 21, 2017--FEMA Region II Acting Deputy Administrator Lai Sun Yi (center), and other Region II personnel, put on floatation devices before getting on a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter for an aerial tour of Manhattan. The New Jersey Army National Guard (NJANG) Aviation Program has generously offered their support to conduct an aerial view/survey of the Gotham Shield Exercise covering the New York/New Jersey area. The overall objective is to gain increased training knowledge and experience from an ‘outside-in’ approach and to improve our national capacity to build, sustain, and deliver core capabilities.
