Please contact your DD, GK, or your diocesan coordinator with questions.
We are in the height of our hurricane season and there two fDisaster Response Team forms which are for use by Reginal Administrators, District Deputies, and Grand Knights, to be submitted to their Diocesan Disaster Response Coordinator.
Phone Tree Contact Results Form: This form is for a GK or DD that has identified a Knight/family/widow that is in need of assistance. It gives some particulars on what is needed.
Skills Bank Form: This form is used to identify volunteers offering their skills and equipment during recovery operations. It should go to the Diocesan Coordinator for inclusion in his file, used to assign work to the volunteer. Can be routed through the DD and/or RA, or directly to the Coordinator.
