Indiana VOAD Meeting

Start Date: 10/10/2019


Trustee and Christine were warmly welcomed to the Indiana State VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster) meeting. The meeting took place at Five Points Indiana Department of Homeland Security in Indianapolis. The IDHS staff extended amazing hospitality to all of us as we enjoyed a lovely lunch and a nice meeting venue.

Trustee brought many smiles before and after the meeting and did well socializing with those present. Christine was asked to give a brief impromptu report on HOPE AACR during the meeting. Several asked for more information following the meeting and were provided with HOPE AACR handouts.

Afterwards, Dave with IDHS offered to take those interested on a complete tour of the facility. Christine and Trustee enjoyed the guided tour of some very state-of-the-art emergency vehicles and learning about MREs (meals ready to eat) and other state resources stored and ready for dispersal in the aftermath of a disaster.

All in all, it was an excellent experience!
