Guard Readiness Tested

September 14th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

New equipment arriving at the Florida National Guard Headquarters is
bringing the guard closer to its goal of having at least 85 percent of
the essential equipment it needs. The equipment index is important
because it measures the guards readiness to assist in natural
disasters. With new arrivals, the guard is at 63 percent equipment
readiness…up ten percent from April. Governor Charlie Crist says hes
checked and is confident the guard is ready for anything.

I just talked to the general the day before yesterday, General Brunette, with the National Guard and he said he was very pleased about the helicopters and the new equipment that came back. In the event we have a hurricane were well supplied and ready, says the Governor.

While the Guard is only at 63 percent of equipment readiness, it is at
92 percent of its manpower allotment.
