Oath Keepers Warning and Disaster Relief “Stand To” on Flooding/Tornadoes in Midwest and South

To the men and women of Oath Keepers, and those who follow us on social media, especially in the midwest and in the South, please stand by in the tradition of minutemen.  Massive flooding, with more rain forecasted this week, is decimating the heartland, and will be flowing south into the Southern states.   Tornadoes are also a serious threat (reportedly 204 in the last week).

 

1.  If you live in potentially affected areas, get ready.   And get ready to serve in disaster relief.

We’re investigating where we can do the most good.   If you can help with flood/tornado disaster relief, please email us at:

volunteers@oathkeepers.org.

You DO NOT have to be a member of Oath Keepers to volunteer to help.

In the subject line of the email put “Flood/Tornado Relief Volunteer in (insert State).”   In the body, tell us what town, county, and state you are in, tell us your availability (both in time and distance – your rough estimate on your realistic range of how far you can travel from home to help), and your skill set/training.   If you have a team, let us know how many, what skillsets, and any special equipment.  If you are a member of Oath Keepers, please do let us know, but it is not a requirement.

Please prepare your camping gear, rations, Individual First Aid Kit, and water so you are self-sufficient for at least four or five days, and any gear you need for your skillset, along with tactical gear to assist local authorities in any way we can.  Chain saws, tools, shovels, chains are all needed.  If you are medically trained, please bring any medical gear you have.  As always, we expect to be used in a security/anti-looting function right along with disaster relief and search and rescue, so be prepared for that mission.  If in doubt, bring it.  Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

If you have a boat, please email us the particulars on what kind of boat you have, and any experience dealing with flood-waters.

Please stand ready to assist!

 

2.  Take Initiative and Report:   If you are in an affected area, we urge you to simply pitch in and help, right now, using your own initiative.   Then email us at:

volunteers@oathkeepers.org

Let us know what you are doing in your area and we will do our best to get you some additional help from other members/volunteers.  Put “Disaster Relief Effort Report in (insert State)’ in the subject line of the email.   In the body, tell us who, what, where, when, and what your most urgent needs are.

Step up and get after it, and let us know where you are, what you are doing, and what assistance you need.

Oath Keepers
PS –  The rain and flooding has already impacted Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana, and is expected to affect the entire Mississippi Valley.  If any of the levies break/are released out of necessity, it could be catastrophic.  This may be a historic flood.  And Tornadoes are a threat in all affected areas as well.  Please prepare for the worst, and be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice.  Pay close attention to your local emergency alert systems.  Do NOT delay if you get an evacuation notice.  Get out.
Endangered communities need to start getting critical supplies together.   Bottled water, food, shelter on high ground, etc.
Please go to our national Oath Keepers Facebook page for frequent updates on flood and tornado conditions:
