Staff . “Our Soldiers , Airmen and Virginia Defense Force personnel quickly left their loved ones and their jobs on very short notice to assist their fellow Virginians in times of need , and we extend a special thanks to their families and employers for their continued support . ”Additional personnel in the Richmond area were alerted to be prepared to provide rotary wing rescue hoist , reconnaissance and aerial transport capabilities . Other Guard members can be called on if necessary to clear roads and offer high mobility transport . Virginia Gov . Glenn Youngkin’s emergency declaration authorized the VNG to bring personnel on state active duty to support state and local authorities in advance of possible severe weather . Typical storm response missions for the VNG include transporting first responders , distributing food and water to people in remote areas and using chain saws to clear roads or power line routes . Additional Soldiers , Airmen and members of the Virginia Defense Force will provide logistics , administrative , operations center and public information support in the Richmond area and at the staging locations . During domestic operations , the VNG receives missions from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management . The Guard is part of a multi - agency team that responds with other state and local agencies to assist Virginia communities . Localities seeking VNG support should contact VDEM , which determines which organization can best help as they coordinate the regional and statewide response .
