Resources

The California-Nevada Conference is currently blessed with a complete and abundant inventory of all resource types. Please do not undertake assembling any of the following resources without checking first with the Disaster Response Coordinator.

As described in detail below, we have several types of disaster response resources that we can provide to assist a survivor.   They include: 

  • UMCOR Cleaning Bucket:  Cleaning supplies for use in cleanup of a damaged home. 

  • UMCOR Hygiene Kit:  Essential emergency personal care supplies. 

  • UMCOR School Kit:  Supplies for use with kids in emergency or other temporary shelter. 

  • Wildfire Bucket: Tools and protective gear to access a burned-out home site. 

  • Wildfire Cleaning Kit:  For cleanup of soot and ash of a home near a wildfire. 

  • Wildfire Sifters:  Essential tool to look for personal possessions in a burned-out home. 

The California-Nevada Conference inventories these types of resources at stocking locations around our Conference geography.  They are given out to disaster evacuees and survivors. 

For more information about funding or assembling these types of resources, contact the Conference Disaster Response Coordinator. 


Relief Kits

Enabling those affected by floods, hurricanes and tornadoes to begin the overwhelming job of cleaning up.



 

Providing basic necessities to people who have been forced to leave their homes because of human conflict or natural disaster. Hygiene kits are also used as learning tools in personal hygiene, literacy, nutrition, and cooking classes.



 

In some areas, children lack access to books and essential school supplies. Classes are held in inadequate buildings. School kits may be some children’s only educational resource.



 

Building Fire Buckets for families who are returning to destroyed homes to sift through the ashes for their belongings is a great way to be involved in recovery and relief.



 

This kit is for use at those homes that survive a fire but suffer from ash, soot and smoke damage.


Wildfire Sifters are used by survivors to look for possessions that might have not burned and are buried in the ashes. We provide these to survivors along the protective equipment and tools to access a home site.
