Officials at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay are gearing up their training ship the “T.S. Kennedy” to help with relief efforts in the hurricane-ravaged mid-Atlantic.

The ship will set sail Sunday for Elizabeth City, N.J., near hard-hit Staten Island. Capt. Tom Bushy tells Channel 4 News that the ship is being prepped at this time.

Once in New Jersey, the ship will serve as a floating hotel for up to 700 workers from the Federal Emergency Management Agency as well as power crews working to restore electricity in the area.

The Kennedy expects to be on duty for about a month.
