Boat Rescuers


Instructions: You may print this page and distribute to storm volunteers if applicable.

What You Need To Know

  1. I am suggesting that boat rescuers be in formation and ready to go, when approved by emergency and local agencies or police: utilized in 12-hr shift, rotational, formation at each community point.
  2. Drivers make sure that you have a full tank of gas, before in route.
  3. Boat-rescuer looters will face stiffer penalties than loiters in any of the stated affected communities.
  4. Be observant of neighbors who can't get out of their homes, but have placed a white or colorful sheet outside of a nearby window of their homestyle location.

Materials Needed

  1. A list of available drop-off shelter points to announce to your victim-customers. Keep your water-proof list with you at all times.
  2. You will need a helper's badge with your name and job title. Wear your water-proof badge at all times.
  3. You will need quality water-proof outerwear: boots, raincoat, etc.
  4. Have your own meal bin, including bottle waters and first-aid kit.
  5. You will need a flashlight if applicable.
  6. A box of one gallon Ziploc bags (slider closure kind is better quality than snap brand).
  7. Write emergency information on your arm with a Sharpie pen.
