'Atmospheric River, October 2021—Canada & USA

Disaster Response series: 

'Atmospheric River, October 2021—Canada & USA'

Within 3 months of the 'Heat Dome' (as reported) blanketing the very same region in July, the second of two severe back-to-back weather events nature presented much more devastation in October. This time, what meteorologists call an "Atmospheric River.” Two, actually, one right after the other.

As widely reported, this was a series of catastrophic multi-day, multi-event, rainstorms that to say the least, overwhelmed neighbouring Canadians and Americans across the region.

A historic mass water event on the heels of summer record heat that had effectually hardened the earth to adequate water drainage. Resulting in flash flooding, dike breaching, and lake-forming structural failings that forced hundreds of families to flee to higher ground.

The 'Responder's First' initiative

The 'Responder's First' initiative grants select emergency and safety equipment to affected communities, as needed, worldwide. To fill inevitable shortfalls of safety and emergency equipment for citizen volunteers arriving ill-prepared at the front lines. Providing campaign funds are available to purchase and deliver the equipment when called upon. That is, as critical needs continue to dictate.

Operationally, we call upon community emergency services to manage who gets what and when regarding localized donor-funded resources. For example, fire, police, search & rescue, etc. Depending on the situation, whichever local agency or response team is best equipped to coordinate this for their community. These equipment donations may be relatively small but certainly impactful.

 

Fund-US - Disasters Aid to Citizen-Volunteers

We need help! Your support will make a world of difference in response to catastrophic disasters across the globe!

The cost of a pint or a glass of wine will help address the critical shortage of emergency equipment amongst citizen volunteers thrust into joining search, rescue, and recovery operations worldwide. This all-hands effort is to shore up their safety and effectiveness—while reducing suffering and loss of life. We are all first responders . . .

The smallest of giving adds up, and we cannot do the work without it. $10-15 per donation is good – less or more, whatever is manageable. Donations in kind, back-linking, etc. and sharing this along are all valuable ways to contribute.

To fund and deliver humanitarian equipment aid to the citizen-volunteer front line. The volume of equipment delivered worldwide is wholly dependent on the donations received. There is no shortage of need.
