Good afternoon DR Volunteers, 

Work in Baltimore County, Baltimore City and Howard County continues. 


We will be working this weekend. If you available to serve any days between now and June 23, please respond to bcmd.org@gmail.com or 443-285-2908. That will send your information straight to our field operations base so the Incident Command team can quickly connect with you.

 

As more jobs come in, DR Volunteers are needed for:

  • **Recovery teams (Urgently Needed):  Most of our work beginning next week will be pressure washing/shockwave. If you aren’t physically able to remove heavy items, we can use you on these less physically demanding teams. We can still use strong, brawny people too. We have all necessary equipment.

 

  • **Kitchen (Urgently Needed): We need 1-2 people each day to prepare breakfast and dinner for about 10-15 people. We are using a church kitchen to feed disaster volunteers.

 

  • Logistics: we need 1 person each day who can be a general helper with shopping, running things out to teams in the field, showers, etc. 

 

  • Assessors: We may need 1-2 people each day to assess damage to homes. There are new homes to be assessed. 

 

  • Unit leaders: you know who you are


**More teams with crew chiefs are needed to do spraying. There are at least 50 spray jobs in the queue from Team Rubicon. There are 52 in Baltimore City open and unclaimed that may need review and reassessment. In Howard County, there are another 10 awaiting a team for tearout (wet insulation) and spray. Other jobs have been trickling in from multiple sources.**

 

Our operations base is set up at Catonsville Baptist Church: 1004 Frederick Rd Catonsville MD

Housing with showers, laundry and meals is available at the church.

 

If you are still available to respond, please respond to bcmd.org@gmail.com with:

  • Your name & best phone number
  • Date(s) you are available
  • What type(s) of work you are willing to do (recovery, feeding, etc)
  • Will you need overnight housing?

 

NOTE: as long as you have had basic DR training, it doesn’t matter what you’re trained in—we can cross-train you in the field if you are willing to try something new.
