  • RESPONDING TO DISASTER

    Our EMA4Relief campaign has been set up as a direct fundraiser for our partner, Music for Relief. They are currently fundraising for Harvey and still have campaigns for Nepal and Haiti. DONATE HERE

     

    If you are interested in throwing a fundraising event for Harvey or the upcoming Irma, please contact us directly so we can help guide you through the process. Our partner for this campaign does not help with every disaster.

    Throw a smarter benefit

    Play it FWD

    Sometimes the most effective organizations are local which we can help you identify. We can also help you accept donations and help promote your event. CONTACT US for more details

    Resilient communities don't wait for disaster to strike

    Become an EMA Ambassador

    Resiliency is the strength of a community. It's how quick it can bounce back after stress or disasters. Resiliency is not response although it includes response. Our ambassador program will focus efforts starting in 2018 on resiliency training and artistic response. Please contact us directly if interested in becoming a community leader. CONTACT US

  • What else can you do now?

    Be prepared

    Is something coming your way?

    As fires ravage the West Coast and Hurricanes bombard the South and East, we encourage our community to be prepared.

    Train in advance

    Free online response training

    World Cares offers free online training for those that want to help with on-ground response.

    Educate yourself about appropriate response

    Not all help is helpful

    Here is a great article about Harvey with lessons that can be applied to other disaster situations. For instance, one suggestion is not to send "stuff" people don't need. It can create what responders sometimes call "the second disaster".

    Use Social Media

    It can work

    If it is accessible, use it. When Harvey was going some people received responses from neighbors and rescue teams by posting messages to Facebook and Twitter. Remember 911 is only for life-threatening emergencies.
