Southeast Texas Disaster Expo

Start Date: 04/23/2022


HOPE was one of 60 vendors at this event. There were multiple speakers including the National Weather service, two Congressmen (Weber and Babin), SBA, Jefferson County Judge Branick and many more. We made about 355 contacts, it was a very busy event with lots of disaster equipment and agencies involved in disasters. It was a great opportunity for HOPE to network with others and for others to learn about what we do. The dogs were a HUGE hit and everyone loved getting to meet them and learn about what we do. The County Judge hopes to have this same event in two years. We learned that these three counties have had more disasters then any other counties in the state.
