Brothers and Sisters,
The NATCA Disaster Response Committee is monitoring the progress of the Woolsey, Camp, and Hill wildfires in the Northern and Southern California areas. We are prepared to send resources in the form of equipment, as well as purchase additional equipment or provide financial support to our union brothers and sisters in need. We will also be soliciting for volunteers to aid with clean-up or reconstruction efforts, should it become necessary.
The Santa Ana winds are expected to increase to near-hurricane force gusts overnight and through November 14th. Should any additional fires spark, they will certainly grow exponentially.
At the very least:
Outside Resources Currently Available:
While the fires may not directly impact your membership, their family members or friends may not be as lucky. The following outside resources are currently available:
NATCA DRC Resources:
The NATCA Disaster Response Committee will be purchasing N95 respirator masks, which are recommended by the California Department of Public Health. If masks would benefit your membership, please respond directly to me with the best address to ship the masks to, as well as a headcount of members who need the masks.
Please keep in regular contact with your membership regarding these fires. Often times, we hear the common responses: “We’re alright” and, “There are people who are worse off than us,” when the person making those remarks actually needs assistance. The DRC is poised to offer a variety of resources, including a housing stipend for members temporarily displaced by the wildfires.
If there are any members impacted by wildfires, please let us know immediately so that we can send our resources in their direction.
