Are you willing to help out in case of an emergency?  We are forming a cadre of members (including family members) who can help SMI members when they can’t help themselves.  Complete the e-mail below.   I will put it on file and contact you when your services are needed.

Because we don’t provide car insurance, if you are willing to provide transportation, please list drivers license and insurance information.

We will be using FEMAs Incident Command System (ICS) to help us manage our response.  Training for how the system works is provided through FEMA self study courses.  We stingily suggest that you take the first four basic courses.  A certificate from the Emergency Management Institute will be issued to you if you sucessfully complete the courses and the final exam. The links to the on-line courses are listed below:
