Commander checks in on Blue Roof installation
Memphis District Commander Col. Zach Miller and Local Government Liaison Dereck Wansing meet with a contractor at a home in Sulphur, La., where a temporary emergency roof is being installed. Operation Blue Roof is a priority mission managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. The purpose of Operation Blue Roof is to provide homeowners and permanently occupied rental properties in disaster areas with fiber-reinforced sheeting to cover their damaged roofs until arrangements can be made for permanent repairs. This is a free service to homeowners. Operation Blue Roof protects property, reduces temporary housing costs, and allows residents to remain in their homes while recovering from Hurricane Laura.
