President Biden spoke with the Governors of Florida and South Carolina to ensure the needs of the State of Florida and the State of South Carolina continue to be met .

An additional 6 Federal Search and Response teams have been deployed to help evacuate survivors and search for missing people . The President directed the deployment of an unprecedented Search and Rescue Coordination Group before the storm made landfall . This group , led by FEMA , began conducting search and rescue operations before daylight on September 29 and continue to conducting operations today . Teams came from across the Federal government and included skilled rescuers from FEMA Urban Search and Rescue task forces , the U . S . Coast Guard , the Department of Defense , Customs and Border Protection , the Department of the Interior , and state and local responders . At the President’s direction , the Army Corps of Engineers has now deployed over 550 personnel to conduct engineering evaluations about the safety of bridges , roads , and other infrastructure and to assess emergency power needs . They are installing generators to support critical infrastructure , focusing on hospitals and long - term care facilities , water treatment and wastewater plants , and public safety organizations such as 911 call centers . The Department of Health and Human Services promptly declared a Public Health Emergency and deployed three disaster medical assistance teams to the region to support emerging health and medical needs . Looking ahead to the urgent needs of hurricane survivors , the President has asked FEMA to focus on the housing needs of survivors as well as other immediate challenges they will face in recovering from Ian .
