WE STARTED LAST WEEK AND WE WERE IN THIS HILL OFFICE TODAY AT 1:00 IN THE MORNING DISTURBING MORE PEOPLE ON EQUIPMENT. SO WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST NEEDS THAT YOU’RE SEEING SO FAR. POWER WHEN WATER COMES THEN POWER GOES OUT TO THESE REFRIGERATION EVERYTHING. SO THE BIGGEST THING IS GETTING IN AND GETTING THE WATER TO GET IT SO IT CAN RESTORE POWER. OK SO YOU’VE DONE THIS BEFORE YOU’VE BEEN IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS. AND CAN YOU GIVE US KIND OF THE MINDSET OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE AFFECTED BY IT. IT’S VERY SAD WHEN YOU GET THERE THERE’S A LOT OF DESPAIR. THERE’S PEOPLE THAT ARE JUST LOST IN THE MOMENT. THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING OR WHERE THEY ARE? AT TIMES THE BIGGEST THING IS THEY’RE LOOKING FOR EITHER RELATIVES THEIR CHILDREN AND THEN AND THEN THEY REALIZE THAT THEY PRETTY MUCH LOST THEIR WAY OF LIFE AT THAT TIME. SO SO WHEN YOU GO IN WHAT KIND OF MINDSET DO YOU HAVE TO PUT YOURSELF AND TO FACE THAT AND GET THE JOB IT’S DIFFICULT. YOU GOT TO PREP YOURSELF GOING AND YOU HAVE TO REMAIN A POSITIVE FORCE WHEN YOU GO INTO THE ENVIRONMENT YOU CANNOT BRING IT DOWN YOU TRIED TO BRING THE OTHERS UP. SHOW THAT YOU’RE THERE TO HELP SHOW THAT YOU CAN CONQUER THE TASK AND SURVIVE. AND THEY’LL BE FINE NOW YOU GUYS ARE ALL PROFESSIONALS YOU DEAL WITH THIS AND WE ALL WANT TO HELP BUT WE PROBABLY COULDN’T HELP DOWN THERE SO HOW CAN WE HELP HERE. I WOULD TALK TO YOUR LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS YOUR CHURCHES MOST PEOPLE GET TOGETHER IN GROUPS THEY’LL PUT MATERIAL TOGETHER FOOD WATER THINGS THEY’RE NON-PERISHABLE BOTTLED WATER IS NICELY BUT YOU CAN SEND DOWN AND CLOTHING ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY GO INTO A WET ENVIRONMENT AND EVERYTHING GETS WASHED OUT CLOTHES ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU SO WHEN YOU GO THERE TO HELP YOU ARE TALKING MITIGATING THE WATER TO TRY TO MINIMIZE WHAT’S GOING ON. WHAT DO YOU DO ESPECIALLY IF THE POWER IS OUT WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU GET THERE? WELL WE HAVE THE CAPACITY WE BRING OUR POWER WITH US WE’LL BRING GENERATION SO WHEN WE GO IN WE CAN CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT THAT’S TURNING IT BACK HEALTHY AGAIN. WE REMEMBER THE WET MATERIALS WE STARTED DRYING OUT AND WE TRIED TO PREVENT AS MUCH OF MUCH OF THE BACTERIA EVERYTHING FROM GROWING BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT’S EFFECTIVE LATER. THAT’S WHAT AFFECTED LATER SO IT APPEARS WITH DORIAN WE PRETTY MUCH DODGED THE BULLET BUT THAT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE THE CASE IF WE EXPERIENCE FLOODING IS THERE SOMETHING WE CAN DO AHEAD OF TIME THAT CAN HELP OUT. SURE. WELL THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU KNOW THAT IT’S COMING IS YOU WANT TO GET TOGETHER A SAFETY KIT MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE STAPLES THAT YOU CAN SURVIVE BY WATER CANNED FOOD IF YOU’RE HAVING WATER COME INTO YOUR HOME HEED YOUR LOCAL NEWS LISTEN TO THEM AND THEY SAY LEAVE PLEASE LEAVE THEY’RE DOING IT FOR A REASON FOR YOUR SAFETY ONE THING IT WON’T DO PREP IS TO GET YOUR PERSONAL BELONGINGS THINGS THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU. GET THEM TOGETHER PUT THEM IN WATERPROOF CONTAINER AND MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THEM WITH YOU. IF THE WATER IS GOING TO COME IN IT’S GOING TO COME IT’S GOING TO COME IN.
