First and foremost, we send our thoughts out to all those directly effected by the flooding on a personal level. This week has been hard for so many.
In the weeks and months to come, as we shift from response to recovery mode, it is important that we first direct our time available to help those most impacted locally to you. At the same time, we are here to support you through the professional challenges we face statewide of repairing our recreational assets that were damaged.
You do not need to wait to cleanup any facilities that have faced damages, and you should act on those repairs as soon as you can. Take lots of pictures, save all receipts, track work hours, and be sure to stay in touch with your local government officials to advocate for your department's needs as we move forward.
Linked here is a press release from FPR that several partnering organizations met to work on earlier this week in advance of this weekend. It is important we share information with the public about safety, and help let them know where it is safe to recreate.
Linked here is a Google drive folder with additional social media images you may all help share this weekend as well.
We will continue to support those of you facing challenges in the weeks and months to come, so please reach out anytime with questions.
Stay safe & please let us know any help you need.
