Disaster Response

A Word from Luis Morales, Conference Disaster Response Coordinator

The 2023 Hurricane season had been good to Georgia—until Hurricane Ian. As Ian continues to churn in the Caribbean Sea, the National Hurricane Center projects that it will bring rain and winds to us later on this week and weekend. I want to take the opportunity now to raise awareness to you using information from www.ready.gov/hurricanes.

Make A Plan

Know Your Evacuation Zone 

Recognize Warnings and Alerts

Review Important Documents

De-clutter drains and gutters, bring in outside furniture

Keep your cell phone charged and vehicle fueled 

Check with neighbors, senior adults, or those who may need additional help 

Gather Supplies:

  • Water (one gallon per person per day for several days, for drinking and sanitation)
  • Food (at least a seven-day supply of non-perishable food)
  • Manual can opener (for food)
  • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
  • Flashlight
  • First aid kit
  • Extra batteries

You can also assist survivors with your monetary blessings. Monetary donations will help with storm recovery needs in the days, weeks and months ahead. Funds for our South Georgia Conference Storm Recovery efforts can be given as follows:
 

  • Give through your local church. Your local church will then send the money to the Administrative Services Office.
  • Mail a check to the Administrative Services Office. Please use Conference Advance Special #6796 - South Georgia Storm Relief (Disaster Response). Address: PO Box 7227, Macon, GA 31209.
  • Online donation

Thank you for giving! Financial gifts will make a significant impact on any current and future relief and long-term recovery efforts. 

In His Service,
