'Disaster Response series:
'Mother Nature's Hat Trick.
Massive Property Damage, Human Suffering, and Death.
Generations will suffer from severe weather anomalies, yet to come.
Atmospheric degradation endangers our collective future. Even if you personally, haven't felt it yet, it is surely happening.
Should we choose to not act, some predict this is leading us straight into a sixth mass extinction.
"The globe is on fire" or, "the world is underwater" . . . and everything in between. Pick your metaphor!
All Climate Change is Local:
Indeed, catastrophic weather events are due to measurable changes in climate. All-too-often closer to home, not far-and-away, or someone else's problem. What we call 'an inescapable truth.'
Escalating. Existential by their very nature. Threatening humanity on a broad scale.
It was 2006, 16 years ago, when former U.S. Vice President Al Gore coined the phrase "An Inconvenient Truth" and, produced and narrated the movie. Which for many, started this conversation. We are grateful!
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.
