The Disaster Response Committee is making progress with Hurricane Florence Response. Many ERT teams are responding in their local areas throughout the Conference. As areas are declared safe by government officials, we are establishing Early Response sites. As of Wednesday, Sept. 26, there will be active response sites in the Beacon and Sound Districts. These sites are accepting ERT-badged persons and ERT-led teams. Sites will be established in the other impacted districts very soon and all sites will need trained volunteer support. It is important for all of us to remember that events of this size and scope require work for an extended period of time. Disaster Response is always more like a marathon than a sprint.
