We have set up the Incident Command for the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief at the High Park Fire area, after spending a week doing mass feeding in Colorado Springs. The High Park response will be much longer, because many of the remote homes in this area were not insured. We expect to have teams from many states here, for a few months, cleaning debris out of burned homesites. There is a team from Oklahoma here providing support for Incident Command and assessment volunteers. We are doing intake interviews and assessments of properties, and expect to begin Chainsaw team work and fire clean up this coming week. Please pray for the volunteers as well as those affected by the fire.
We had a great training in Mancos, CO this week, and there are pics posted on the Disaster Relief page. Now we are at a campground in Prescott, AZ, meeting with people about our ministry and planning outreach activities for next weekend.
