As we enter hurricane season (June 1-November 30) we will be bringing you resources that are important steps you can take now to help you prepare should we experience a storm.
Communications with the congregation on current Hurricane conditions will be available primarily through our website and church emails. Personal phone calls for those without computer access will be made. The phone number of 904-990-3119 can be called in the event of a member needing assistance following a storm. Emails can be sent to [email protected].
More information will be forthcoming very soon! If you are willing to assist others in the event of a Hurricane, please contact Sharon Cleland, Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected] or Jan Nicholas at [email protected] . We are here to help!
Our presbytery’s Disaster Assistance Commission (SAPDAC), the Florida Presbyterian Disaster Assistance Network (FLAPDAN), and PDA are working together to develop a statewide list of "commuter volunteers" who can respond to local disasters. After a disaster, a volunteer team will provide their own transportation to the work site, bring all they need for a day’s work (food, water, PPE, tools), and return home the same day. After storm damage (such as from a hurricane) the typical work includes muck/gut, debris removal, and temporary repairs to stop additional damage. Applications to become a commuter volunteer can be found at:https://www.flapdan.org/commuter-volunteers
