You’re not ready until you’re Red Dirt Ready...........A message from the State of Oklahoma Office of Homeland Security.
OKOHS - Red Dirt Ready - Home


Quote:

The old adage “it’s better to give than to receive” really goes a long way...because when it comes to getting Red Dirt Ready you’re actually helping to protect yourself.

When you volunteer to be of service to others, not only are you doing a good thing, but it makes you feel good too. And there are a host of ways you can volunteer to help your community by being prepared and responsive should a threat or disaster occur.

Oklahoma already has a rich heritage of being responsive when disaster strikes. Find out how you can be a part of something greater than yourself and help carry on this proud tradition. Take our short questionnaire and find out where you fit in!

It's interesting that under the "other opportunities" tab, the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief organization is not mentioned.

The SBC DR team is the second-largest disaster relief organization in America, behind the Red Cross, and includes more than 6000 trained members just in Oklahoma alone. We are the primary providers of emergency food preparation for the Red Cross in any emergency and the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma (BGCO) has a 53 ft kitchen, plus the power units to haul it, in addition to several smaller trailers maintained by various Baptist Associations around the state. All the kitchens are fully equipped and fully staffed with trained and experienced volunteers. They also have an air-transportable kitchen which can go anywhere in the world on a moments notice.

Also, we Baptist's provide emergency services in the following areas:

Damage Assessment
Chain-saw
Mud-out (cleaning out flooded homes)
Child Care
Water purification
Debris cleanup (after fires)
Showers and laundry for emergency workers

Oklahoma Baptist's typically respond to disasters several times a year to locations all over the country and around the world. Just within the past year alone, DR teams have responded to ice storms, tornadoes, tsunami's, floods, and even fed refugees in the nation of Georgia. Our chain saw and feeding crews have recently spent several weeks helping out after Hurricane's Ike, Gustav, Rita, Katrina, Dennis and Ivan. We've done mud out in Galveston, Miami, OK, Iowa and other places. We've responded to Oklahoma ice storms in McAlester, Eufaula, Muskogee, Tahlequah, Oklahoma City and Tulsa, in addition to tornadoes in Pitcher, Anadarko and Lone Grove.

If you are a member of a Southern Baptist congregation and over 18 years old, you are welcome to join, take the training, and be ready to respond when your neighbors need you.

As a proud Southern Baptist I say "Amen!"
