Tennessee Tornado 12/13

On Tuesday, we had 23+ volunteers come to us for work. Half of them were from the army and had been given leave by their commanders so they could help with the cleanup. A contact from a local church connected us with a family that needed help. We were able to help clear trees out of their yard and tarp their neighbor’s roof.
In the afternoon, we were told that the Clarksville Emergency Response had sectioned the disaster zone into different sectors to more effectively manage volunteers in the area. Clarksville is a military town and the commanding general is in support of helping the community. With this being the case, it is unlikely that a shortage of volunteers will occur. We were very impressed with the speed at which things were getting cleaned up and also how well everything was organized. It’s is incredible to see people come from far and wide to help out those in need.
With the needs on the ground well-covered, our team is returning home and will prep for the next response.
