While organizing supplies at Los Angeles Fire Station 84, volunteers saw firsthand what the first phase of a disaster response looks like. They’re doing the best they can on behalf of residents and cooperative partnership community organizations is an absolute necessity so that they can focus on what they are trained to do best.
Thanks to your donations we are able to play a pivotal role in developing what will inevitably become a source of relief for disaster victims. Many thanks to the donors and the 80 volunteers. Additional photographs are available on our social media pages. Building stronger, more resilient communities requires teamwork.
About the Disaster Relief Effort
Like the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the road to recovery following today’s natural disasters is still long. But we don’t have to make the same mistakes made in response to the recovery efforts in 2005. While the D’Andre D. Lampkin understands the desire for immediate relief, we encourage everyone to follow the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF), which serves as a companion document to the National Response Framework (NRF). The NDRF is a guide to promote effective recovery, particularly for those incidents that are large-scale or catastrophic.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
