Minuteman Disaster Response - Open House
Having served numerous communities in its ten years of existence, Minuteman Disaster Response, a charitable non-profit based in McKinney, TX is expanding its operations to Tulsa, OK. With NE Oklahoma being in the middle of tornado alley, it only makes sense to establish a team of trained and equipped volunteers in this area.
On April 10th the organization will be hosting an Open House from 10a – 2p and invites the general public out to take a tour of their entire basecamp, learn more about their mission and consider joining the team.
After serving Tulsa County during the spring floods of 2019, Commissioner Karen Keith presented the organization with a special plague that read "You saved lives and made a huge difference in this disaster. Your teams worked tirelessly to give survivors hope and a path forward. We can never repay you for your hard work."
Those interested in attending the Open House should visit minutemanresponse.org/openhouse for more details.
Minuteman Disaster Response (MDR) is a first-responder support team comprised of well-trained volunteers. Before disaster strikes, we forecast storms and prepare our teams for deployment. When the call comes to serve, our goal is to provide significant aid to disaster victims and emergency personnel utilizing the NIMS ICS management system. Our volunteers are trained in all areas of disaster relief, including Debris Cleanup, Resource Management, Search and Rescue, First Aid, Emergency Communications and Command Structure.
MDR is there before, during and after disaster strikes to serve communities who need our help the most.
