Beauregard Baptist Association Disaster Relief

Date: Saturday, August 26, 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

 Disaster Relief Training

Presented by Beauregard Baptist Association. 

We are in hurricane season, and as we have seen over the past couple of years, it doesn’t take a tornado or hurricane to devastate an area. The sheer amount of rain we have received has resulted in loss of life and property here in Louisiana. I am not sure there are any of us who haven’t had a family member or friend impacted by the recent weather events. Our church now has an opportunity to do something to assist people in times like these.

On August 26, 2017 from 9:00am to 3:00pm the Beauregard Baptist Association will host chainsaw and cook trailer training here at our church. The Association has a chainsaw trailer readily available to serve in a disaster area, but they don’t have certified operators. They are seeking people willing to get their certification in order to respond to the needs of people statewide and beyond if necessary.

The cook trailer is something many people here in Beauregard Parish may have experienced as they were stationed and set up at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church after hurricane Rita came through. These trailers are vital to helping people survive on a daily basis. The training received on August 26, 2017 will enable you to help with either the chainsaw or cook operations in times of need.

Please consider coming out and getting certified on one of these very important disaster relief trailers. A sign-up sheet will be at the Connect Center. Please contact John Rabb through the church office for more details.
