The goals are to provide more efficient follow-up with those who we help after disasters (like house fires) and more volunteer opportunities in our Nevada office. Volunteers Valorie Mead and Joyce Wallace will be in charge of casework. If you would like to help them, please call the Nevada Office at (417) 667-5563.
The Nevada Office is located in the Great Southern Bank Building at 201 E Cherry Street.

I don't know about you, but I am CONSTANTLY sending eMails to my friends and family to let them know the important things in my life (or to forward the next best joke to them! :)). Imagine what could happen if, with every eMail you sent, you taught someone how to be safe, and how to be prepared for disaster? Just think of how many lives you could touch, and how many lives you could potentially save....all with just an eMail!
That's why I'm committing to educating EVERYONE I touch through eMail on the "Preparedness Tip of the Month". It's as easy as changing your signature block on your eMail program to include the tip that we send out each month. This month's tip is:
***** HEAT STROKE (also known as sunstroke) is aIt's that easy! With every eMail you send, you are potentially saving someone's life. (Think about how many eMails you send in a day! That's a lot of impact you can have!)
life-threatening condition. Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number
immediately! Signs include: hot, red skin which may be dry or moist; changes in
consciousness; vomiting; and high body temperature. *****

So, take the 'eMail Preparedness Pledge' with me, and add the Preparedness Tip Of The Month to your eMail signature today!
