ABMen USA Oklahoma Response 2013
Attached are forms the American Baptist Home Mission Society requests from us which enables them to provide supplemental medical and travel insurance for volunteers. The forms should be returned to your Team Leader for consolidation and forwarding to Kim Wilkins ABC-USA HMS-VM (800) 222-3872 ex 2413 email@example.com
Acquiring coverage under the Home Mission Society’s insurance is dependant on submitting the forms prior to deployment if possible and definitely prior to incurring a claim.
As the National Coordinator, I need to submit to FEMA a report by name of each volunteer and the hours worked each day. The result of this report is that FEMA credits the value ($20+/hr) of our volunteer hours to the local community as an offset of the matching funds they must pay to get the grant assistance FEMA provides. Thus it is important that I receive from each team a list of volunteers, the hours and job sites for each day worked. Travel hours are considered work hours. If you wish to track them separately, I will appreciate it. If not, OK.
Also attached are the forms the WV teams use. Given the variability of state law, I recommend you have a local attorney review them for validity in your area of work.
ABMen WV will deploy 12 volunteers June 2-9 to Moore OK Work assignments will be provided by the Serve More Call Center 866 484-3500
I have made additional arrangements lodging, showers and some meals at the St Andrew Methodist Church for 10 volunteers the week of June 2nd and also for the week of June 10th. Please contact me if you need to use these reserved facilities.
The Mud-out and Chainsaw Training document and Homeowner, Volunteer and Assessment forms will be on the www.abmen.org web site as soon as the web master returns from vacation.
