Flood Disaster Training

March 1, 2017

The clean up is where we, the church, come in to help ~ Training starts day after tomorrow, Wed, 7pm!
SAN JOSE FLOOD RESPONSE TRAINING this Wed!   March 1st   GateWay City Church
The first Disaster Response Training by Cityteam is this Wednesday at 7 pm at Gateway, 5883 Eden Park Place, San Jose. Other training opportunities TBA. https://www.cityteam.org/disasterresponse/

“Storms in San Jose, California have caused disastrous flooding and mandatory evacuations for 14,000 people. Another 36,000 people were in the recommended evacuation area. 400 people have been rescued by boat, and many homes and cars have been damaged by flooding and falling trees. Many residents remain under mandatory evacuation.”

Cityteam has years of experience stepping in as a long-term responder to help families rebuild their lives after disasters. The first step is disaster response training & background checks for those who wish to help. John Scott, Cityteam’s San Jose City Director, will lead the training. John Scott served for more than 2 years at Katrina as a leader in relief efforts for Cityteam.

Here are a few ways you can help us respond to the needs:

  • Donate Supplies: Provide relief to your neighbors in need by donating “Baskets of Blessings.” Learn how below.
  • Financial Donations: You can make a financial donation to equip our disaster relief teams who will be assisting families in cleaning and rebuilding their homes. Funds are used to purchase cleaning and building supplies. Make a donation here.
  • Volunteer: It will take months to help families restore their homes. The flood water was contaminated by sewer water and house hold chemicals found in garages and under sinks. Mold will be an issue. Please contact Erin Campos to volunteer at ecampos@cityteam.org.

Cityteam is working with SJ City officials to respond to the long term relief and recovery efforts for flood victims. Immediate efforts are underway with the initial clean-up. Our plan is to mobilize teams of volunteers from the local church to help get people through this tragedy & back into their homes in the coming weeks. People can volunteer and give through Cityteam at www.Cityteam.org/disasterresponse
