…also known as Hurricane Dennis. DR 533 is the Red Cross designation for the disaster that Dennis will create in short order. I was deployed Thursday afternoon, and am currently in Birmingham, AL, waiting to see where we will be sent to ride out the storm. After it passes, we will go where needed. I am assigned to the ECRV 4710, an emergency communications vehicle with radio and satellite links to allow the National HQ to provide direct assistance to a disaster site.
I am keeping a livejournal blog of my experience, and with a mods’ permission, I’d like to post the URL to it.
I may or may not be able to visit this post, depending on how often we connect to the internet and how many other things I have to do.
