From Baptist & Reflector
FRANKLIN — Tennessee Baptist Disaster Relief teams are being asked to mobilize for relief work efforts in Connecticut after tornadoes swept through New England last week.
The line of storms, which included two EF-1 tornadoes, caused severe damage to several towns in Southwest Connecticut. The storms destroyed roughly 200 homes and damaged about 800 more.
New England DR teams are working quickly to mobilize, but are in need of assistance. Tennessee DR teams are being asked to mobilize, if possible, to help in the following areas:
• Assessing teams
• Chainsaw recovery teams
• Chaplain teams
• Chipper teams (with equipment possibly; all rentals have been taken)
• Skid steer teams (with equipment possibly)
• Bucket truck crew
• ICC / admin
• Feeding (fixed kitchen for volunteers only)
Those who are able to help should contact Wes Jones, disaster relief specialist for the TBMB. Jones can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at 615.371.7927.
