while its not the National Guard,
i do some volunteer through church for these situations..... ERT, VIM (methodist church)

most of these groups need to get the OK by the FEDS first to be allowed in, since they are usually shut down to residents and FED/State personell only in the initial phases.

there will be plenty of opportunity to help, but first is do no harm
1. dont get in the way of the people that should be there
2. Dont cause more damage to the property (the area needs to be assessed by the insurers first usually for the claim process to work without a hitch, or they will say property owner did damage to increase claim)

my answer would be contact your local board of (red cross, salvation army or the likes) that would be "activated" to help


Agreed. In many ways its almost better to stay home until many of the roads are reopened.

Cool, ya....I wasn't talking about charging my ass full steam into Boulder or Lyons right now in some sort of attempt to pull people from drowning homes. I was implying once the flood waters subside and they need hands to pick up trash. :roll:

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

The website http://www.helpcoloradonow.org/ has been activated and is being published as place for the public to get information as a way to volunteer. The website http://www.crisiscleanup.org/ will be used as the tool to arrange teams to assist homeowners with cleanup and debris needs

My thoughts are with everyone affected by the disaster. We here on the western slope are thinking about you!
