Our first advice is this: If you are not trained and certified in Early Response, please do not go to the disaster area at this time. In many places you will not be allowed to enter the affected areas and if you do get in, the area could pose significant danger to you.
This is the information as listed on the NY Conference Disaster Center website:
NY Conference UMC Disaster Response Coordinator: Rev. Joseph Ewoodzie
Contact Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The disaster response call center number is: 914-615-2233. Call to notify NYAC of your immediate needs so that we can respond appropriately. A note to our volunteers: We are not first responders — please do not go to any disaster areas unless you are deployed by the conference disaster response team. Please contact the disaster response call center to volunteer your time to help during the response and releif stages of this event.
