TS Nate Preparations, Maria Response, Mexico City, Irma, Harvey Recovery

NOTE: We’ll be taking the weekend off from this report (but not from our response activities!). Should urgent requests for support arise, they will be shared appropriate association and logistics partners for review.

The next report will be on Monday, October 9, 2017.

Just a few items of note tonight:

ALAN is monitoring TS Nate. A few resources you may wish to tag for your use:

We hope to transition our Maria status to recovery next week, as more nodes of the supply chain begin to come online with permanent or sustainable temporary power / water. A good resource for those seeking information on Maria restoration activities is Thanks to Jarrod Goentzel for sharing this with us earlier in the week before it became a hot news item.

ALAN continues to convene daily non-profit and business supply chain coordination calls in conjunction with Airlink, LIFT, and MIT’s Humanitarian Response Lab. Several successes have been reported, with businesses sharing logistics resources to get critical supplies to their employees and customers, and non-profits sharing space on a plane chartered by Airlink. Another flight will launch on Saturday carrying critical medicines.

A reminder on how to request and offer support:

DHS and FEMA are holding a daily private sector coordination call at 3 PM Eastern.  Dial-in number and participant passcode/pin: Dial-In #: 800-324-5531 pin: 798364 NBEOC Operations Dashboard:  (A dashboard for Nate is being created, that link will be shared when available.)

A personal thank you for supporting our work. I’m so grateful that you’ve worked alongside us the past 6 weeks. Whatever TS Nate brings, I know that you, our teammates, are there to support us. Thank you. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
