WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus announced Oct. 10 the establishment of the Washington Navy Yard Recovery Task Force.

Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Energy, Installations and Environment (EI&E) Dennis McGinn will lead the task force. Vice Adm. William D. French, commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC), is designated the Task Force deputy commander.

"We will continue to care for our Navy family impacted by this tragedy, and ensure those commands are able to continue doing their job," Mabus said. "This task force will serve as the single point of contact for all departmental actions and activities focused on their recovery."

Specifically, the task force will develop a comprehensive infrastructure restoration plan while ensuring the proper coordination of physical and behavioral health care needs of all individuals affected by the tragedy, the recovery of personal effects from the crime scene, and temporary spaces for displaced commands.

Washington Navy Yard Recovery Task Force assumes the responsibility of actions assigned to the Emergency Family Support Task Force established, Sept. 16.
