On the evening of Friday August 25th, the strongest Hurricane to make landfall in over a decade unleashed its devastation over Port Aransas and Port Connor, TX. In the days following Hurricane Harvey, the Gulf coast of Texas and Louisiana were devastated with high winds and over 50 inches of rain. As the waters rose, Public Safety Employees went to work. Law enforcement, firefighters, EMS and the heroes behind the headset - 911 Telecommunicators - worked day in and day out to serve their communities. Many of those helping would lose their own property and in some cases their own family members. Many of these employees worked for days, unable to return home and unable to communicate with family or knowing whether they had a home left to go back to. As the waters begin to recede, the needs for these families are becoming greater every day. 911 Telecommunicators from the entire Texas coastline need our help.
The Denise Amber Lee Foundation, Texas APCO, The Healthy Dispatcher, Texas NENA Team911 and IXII have come together to start this fundraiser to help these unsung Heroes. All donations are appreciated and 100% of all proceeds will be distributed to these families who have lost family or property during this tragic event. With a donation of $20 or more, you may receive a #TEXASSTRONG T-Shirt that has been custom-designed to help with this Fund!
Thank you for your support; 911 thanks you!
