Update on mudslide in Washington
There have been no requests for ERT type assistance. Based on the information from the media, emergency agencies, people on the ground in Arlington and the VOAD, it is unlikely we will be asked to send ERTs into the area. If we are asked to respond, it will not be any time soon.
I know you are anxious to help. So am I. But, they don't need our support right now. They need people with search and rescue training, heavy equipment operators, chain saw operators, and dog teams.
Ok, so you and I can make a donation right? Yes we can. Please see here for more information.
