Incident Management Team Winds Up Operations

National Park of American Samoa

National Park News

The Western Incident Management Team is in the process of transitioning tsunami recovery operations back to the National Park of American Samoa. Cleanup operations will be scaled back and the park, with outside assistance, will take over management of operations. The cultural resource team was able to recover a substantial percentage of the collections and files originally thought beyond recovery. Park crews have made significant progress in removing debris from five partner villages, assisting many residents and several schools. The tsunami was a horrific event for all who experienced it. The critical incident stress management team was able to provide support to park staff and crews affected by the event. The emergency is over, but the people of America Samoa will be dealing with the impacts for years to come.
