On the17th and the 20th of September 2017, the President declared a Major Disaster Declaration for Puerto Rico (PR) and the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), which directed the Federal Government to provide assistance to supplement Commonwealth, Territory and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by Hurricanes Maria and Irma. As the executive agent for Public Health and Medical Services under the National Response Framework (NRF), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) was directed to provide Public Health and Medical resources and assistance to local health authorities providing medical response capabilities. ASPR deployed several off-the-shelf resources (caches and kits) to PR and USVI for federal public health and medical teams providing response missions on the ground. After the federal teams demobilized from the mission, the forward deployed resources return to prestaging warehouses for reconstruction to be fully prepared to field deploy for future response missions.
