LONG TERM RECOVERY COMMITTEE

 


HOW TO HELP...

The more recent hurricanes and threats of terrorism encourage us all to act.  Preparing for disasters, help communities by strengthening response and speeding recovery from emergencies.  Recovery efforts in Seminole County can be a long-term and expensive process for an area primarily suburban to rural.  Preparedness will dramatically decrease the time spent on response and help citizens to recover more quickly and efficiently.  

Loading SuppliesSupport from volunteers is vital to making these efforts a reality.  It is all about helping friends and neighbors begin the return to normalcy after damages from a disaster.   

Seminole HEART asks that persons consider how they might develop a broader-based disaster preparedness program throughout their organization.  Your can help your organization plan for disasters in several ways:

  1. Encourage disaster response preparedness involvement within your organization through education, training and information.
  2. Pass this information and opportunity for action and training on to your leaders in our community.
  3. Provide us with contact information of interested community and organizational leaders from your group, who can work with Seminole HEART in forming local unmet needs committees. 
  4. Share your organization’s leadership and expertise with the larger community through working with us.
  5. Invite Seminole HEART or Emergency Management to meet with you and/or other leadership for more information.
