GEM USA West along with partner @harprescue delivered and distributed $226,000 in aid, camping gear, non-perishable food, supplies, hygiene products, camping gear, and Flew the Coop kits for our furry friend pets. In addition, the GEM team distributed $10,000 in #bstrong cash cards to individuals and families who have been displaced from the Oregon Road Wildfires that ravaged over 11,000 acres and many homes in Elk, Washington.
GEM and Harp Rescue did not only help the community in need but was able to give fire retardent gear by MCR to the local first responders, fire department, and for the fire rescue volunteers.
Our partners, Harp, worked the fires with the local Sheriff’s and several Fire Department stations for 5 days helping with SAR, Evacs, Security, and Firefighting. Harp also provided thermal imaging to the local fire departments from their drone operated surveillance systems to help keep track of the fire itself and the properties in its path that were threatened. #GEMmissions @burkebryant @harprescue @elizabeth_24_jernberg @jernbergjason @michaelcapponi
