Project Report | Nov 19, 2018
November, 2018

By Jake Gillanders | Executive Director

Since August, we've remained focused on expanding and improving our capabilities to respond here at home, as well helping other communities become more prepared. Since our last report, we've:

  • Deployed two teams, one to Hilo, HI and one to Lumberton, NC;
  • Brought personal and community preparedness training to dozens of citizens of the PNW region;
  • Begun training a brand new disaster search canine, Libby;
  • Trained 6 of our canine handlers and several of our medical providers in canine emergency medical care;
  • Adopted and initiated a water/flood rescue program;
  • Begun discussing 2 new community preparedness and response programs.

In the coming months, we'll be continuing our push for disaster preparedness and rescuer training by:

  • Purchasing a new response vehicle;
  • Developing our incident command course;
  • Developing three exciting new rescue courses and two medical courses.

All of this is possible because of your contributions! We couldn't be more grateful.  Thank you for your ongoing support!
