Donations Requested for Shelter Events – Games

Members, we are in need of games such as Monopoly Empire, Life, cards, poker chips, activities for our young “disaster drill victims”. This became evident at our recent Shelter Management Drill, May 29, at the Seabrook Community House. We had approximately 15 teenagers who needed something to do while waiting. Activities for smaller children are needed also.

Please let me know if you can contribute.

This year the event has been expanded to include local resources. They are inviting BayCERT members to attend this year’s event at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base in Houston, Texas, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 30, 2014. The team would need to be in place by 7am; and are in need of 20 – 24 volunteers! Since 2012, the showcase and exercise has provided an extremely effective avenue for highlighting the emergency management community’s scope of response capabilities and resources to the media, legislators, and legislative staff.
