Call to Action: Volunteers Needed for Hurricane Laura Disaster Relief
Attention all Oath Keepers and patriots:
Volunteers are needed to assist with disaster relief in areas impacted by Hurricane Laura. A large swath of Louisiana has been severely impacted, and is without power. You DO NOT have to be a member of Oath Keepers to volunteer. Just be willing to help.
To volunteer, email us at: email@example.com
Please include your full name, phone number, current address, a copy of your drivers licenses and your license to carry permit if you have one.
Also please call 601-686-0979. If we don’t answer, please send a text and we will call back.
All are welcome, and we will find a job for you, but we especially need the following skillsets:
Search and rescue
LEO/military with training or experience applicable to security/security
Our focus is on disaster relief, but reality is, bad-guys will take advantage in the chaos of a disaster area, and security is a critical need, to escort relief personnel, to provide security for our own volunteers, and to protect supplies distribution points. We may also be called upon to assist in anti-looter patrols in communities. Louisiana is an open carry state – you don’t need a permit to open carry both handguns and long-guns. Concealed carry requires a permit.
Skilled boat operators
Skilled truck and equipment drivers/operators
people skilled in using chain saws and related equipment for clearing trees
(if you don’t clearly fit into the above categories, we will find something for you to do, so please volunteer)
We are assembling teams for deployment with a plan to rally in or near Alexandria, LA to assist multiple agencies in the disaster relief efforts! Should you be available and abled to help out, please contact us immediately for further details.
If you can’t make it in person to help, please donate to support those who can. Your donations help provide fuel, food, lodging, essential gear and supplies for our volunteers, first responders and those displaced by the catastrophic storm! Go here to donate:
Thank you and God bless!
NOTE: Volunteers who are willing to go out into the field to do search and rescue and direct assistance to disaster victims need to be ready to deal with austere field conditions. Please be prepared to be as self-sufficient as possible. Below is a list of gear that would be helpful if you have it. Please do not let this list scare you away from volunteering if you don’t have everything on it. This is just to help you to bring what you do have that may be useful. Especially if you have a critical skillset but don’t have any gear, please still volunteer and we will provide you the gear you need.
List of useful gear (please bring if you can – if you don’t have it, please volunteer anyway):
Concealed Carry insurance (a good idea if you can do it)
Gas/mixing oil for chainsaws
Cutters /skin so soft
Extra chains/spark plugs
Chain Adjusting tools
Burner phone and chargers
Clothes for inclement weather (spare cloths)
guns and ammo for security missions
Tac vests / body armor
Green glo vests
Glow tape/ bright eyes
Glow orange and green paint
Rechargeable spot light
Rechargeable Radios (bring any radios you have- HAM, FRS, CB, etc)
Magnetic Door signs
Large zip ties
Tire plugs and valve stems and compressors
Razor knives and blades
Body cams (go-pro type cameras)
Anything else you need to sustain yourself and to do the skillset you are qualified for, please bring it.
