As Emergency Management professionals, we constantly need to think outside the box. We are faced with challenging situations and are forced to to conjure up creative solutions for our community.
I’d encourage many of you to reach out to your non-governmental organizations (NGOs) as they can be a great resource in solving complex problems for all of our communities. Building these relationships before a disaster or emergency will pay off three fold as you help your community rebuild. In the end, we need all of our communities to be self sustaining and more resilient.
Additionally, you yourself should consider donating items to their efforts. These organizations are primarily funded by donations from generous people like you.
