FEMA Hurricane Harvey Private Sector Update Aug. 25

Information before and after ANY significant event (man-made, or natural disaster) is vital to the community.

Association members with family and friends in the path of Hurricane Harvey for the entire Gulf of Mexico region from Texas to Florida please contact them by phone, Western Union, a neighbor, local Fire & Police to ensure that they follow the instructions of local emergency management offices if instructed to evacuate, and seek shelter at designated location.

A home can be rebuilt, a car can be purchased again, but any life is more precious than material things.

Charles D. Sharp.  CEO Black Emergency Managers Association International

Life safety is paramount. Our primary concern now is to ensure that those in the path of the storm can make informed decisions for their preparedness and take actions as the storm advances based on guidance from local and state authorities.  This is a unique storm and requires all of us to be actively assessing how we can support critical messaging from local authorities regarding protective actions including evacuations which are underway.  

We want to ensure FEMA is connected to you providing data, information, and messaging as needed.
