Dear OKMRC volunteers, We have had an extremely difficult few days. We know you all are seeing and hearing about the devastation and want to assist as soon as possible, but right now we want to ask you to do the following things to make our collaborative effort as effective as possible for our neighbors in need: 1. Allow the first responders to do the work they need to do. It will take time to assess the complete amount of damage our fellow Oklahomans have suffered and comprise a list of immediate needs. 2. In the meantime, prepare yourself for possible deployment. This means be sure you have a go-bag packed with a change of clothes, sturdy closed-toed shoes, any medications you take, snacks, and your OKMRC badge or other identification. This is likely to be a lengthy response, but we have not sent out any general assistance requests yet. We only deploy people based on the requests we receive. PLEASE DO NOT SELF DEPLOY!! Many unsolicited volunteers are showing up at the Moore Command Center. Best practices include a collaborative response so people are directed when needed to where their skills will be most helpful. Thank you!!
