This is one of those pieces of information you need in your back pocket. It something you need to know about. But everyone including the disaster relief services hopes you are never going to need them. Sadly, in these days of climate change, rising water and increasingly long hurricane seasons we hear of the need for disaster relief services increasingly.
The truth is you can prepare for a storm or a high tide, but sometimes these things just cause a huge amount of damage and like having good insurance having a team with experience in face of the horrors is a great advantage.
When you’re in the middle of a crisis, you simply are not thinking properly. You are focused on the really important elements like making sure everyone is safe and protected. But when something dreadful occurs the consequences go a lot deeper than you would at first imagine.
That’s why having a team of cool-headed experts who have experience is going to help in ways you didn’t even know you needed. These are people who will already understand the environmental implications of the situation. They will have the health and safety considerations nailed too.
Best of all they will be well aware of the Federal Government implications and what needs to be done in the wake of a disaster to stay on the right side of the law. They also know about the aid programs available.
There’s something eminently reassuring about having a team of people who are competent and calm when you’re in the midst of a crisis. God forbid you’ll ever be in a situation where you suffer a great loss, but if your community were to, having someone who really has your back will at least provide some comfort.
