On October 2 early morning, a gunman opened fire on a group of individuals that was attending a country music festival. The latest reports confirm over 50 people killed, along with roughly 500 injured. Currently, emergency management is on the scene and evaluating how the Recovery Efforts will be organized.
NAD ACS DR has contacted our local Nevada/Utah Conference Director, Jerry Waggoner, about ensuring that our local resources are aware of our willingness to assist should there be an expressed need. We have reached out to our Emotional/Spiritual Care team members in a couple of Conferences that are near Las Vegas, Nevada. Additionally, we reached out to the Red Cross and discussed our availability. Our team is now on standby, and trust if we are needed we'll be able to meet the needs of the survivors recovering from this traumatic experience.
