We are pleased to announce that we now have a dedicated disaster response trailer available to our Conference. This recently refurbished and retooled trailer will be used by our Early Response Teams to deploy to natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods, and wildfires.
This trailer is equipped with all the requisite tools and supplies our volunteers might need to assist disaster survivors. It also includes cleaning and protective equipment to give to survivors themselves. This trailer will greatly improve our ability to serve extended durations at disaster sites, such as the Humboldt Earthquake and the floods earlier this year.
A special thank you goes out to First UMC Bakersfield for providing the trailer, to Bob Lee at Los Altos UMC for leading the renovation and to the Cal-Nev Conference for funding the project. For questions about this trailer, contact Steve Elliott, Cal-Nev Disaster Response Coordinator at UMVIMCoordinator@calnevumc.org.
