Post Incident Relief Operations - Southern Comfort

During intermission at the Syracuse Symphony Pops Concert last Saturday we had the opportunity to visit with some dedicated members of the Operation Southern Comfort Hurricane Katrina and Rita Relief Effort group.....New Orleans and the surrounding area is still a disaster and these hard working, dedicated souls have been travelling down there for weeklong stints since 2005 to help reconstruct homes and return the New Orleans area to a sense of normalcy.

Having just had a 68 twister storm only a day ago hitting five states we might tend to forget about this horrendous disaster.....if only for a moment.

Well these folks have figured out that complaining won't get anything acomplished, so they have organized 400 volunteers in the Central New York area to help rebuild.

They are always looking for able bodied adults that can spend time travelling down in groups to work on specific projects... if you have and know how to use power tools and have building skills that is a plus for this group...if you have equipment or supplies to spare.....feel free to donate....these are the folks to contact:

We added a web page to the ICE4SAFETY site to help these folks along until they get their own site. Least we could do seeing all they have done. Click HERE!
