Dear Members and Supporters, The Staff and Executive Board at H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 have been following Hurricane Isaac’s track and it has become certain that it will hit land on the US Gulf Coast in the area of New Orleans. We have been in contact with Louisiana State CRT Executive Director Janet Pace and the Louisiana VOAD – who are the people/ organizations that mobilized us in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and during Hurricanes’ Ike and Gustav. At this time we have been asked to stand down but be ready to respond immediately following the first 24 hours of the hurricane. We are all aware of the complicated logistics that go into conducting an evacuation. H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 will begin internal preparations and will await further instructions from officials in Louisiana. We are asking our members to contact Ellen Wright firstname.lastname@example.org or Tony Sanpietro email@example.com ASAP with your availability.
