INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
We don’t know what we’ll find. It is day 6 for some. Our goal is to find them alive to reunite with guardians.
Red Cross Shelters in Atlantic County decide to close a day earlier than anticipated. Despite Sandy’s devastating impact on Jersey shores, Atlantic City dodged the worst. Kinship Circle volunteers assist in break down. With many evacuees and their animals able to return home, sheltering is consolidated and relocated to Atlantic City.
We’ve worked under agreement (MOU) with Atlantic County Office of Emergency Preparedness since 10/28/12, to provide animal care and search-rescue for districts within this FEMA jurisdiction. Local volunteers and coordinator Mary Langford, DVM, are among the nicest and most devoted people we’ve met in a disaster zone!
Kinship Circle’s team leader, Cheri Deatsch, meets with Atlantic County’s Deputy Director to discuss further needs. With search-rescue winding down here, a call is made to nearby Ocean County emergency management agency to offer our services.
