ARC OF CENTRAL TEXAS CANTEENING FOR FIRST RESPONDERS

In the early morning hours yesterday, our Director of Disaster Services was called because our services were needed in Spicewood, Texas. An off duty Department of Public Safety trooper had gone missing on Lake Travis and the search was underway to find him. Volunteers were deployed within hours of getting the call.

I still marvel at how quickly we notify our volunteers, pack up our Emergency Response Vehicle and get on our way. By 7:30 yesterday morning hot breakfasts and coffee were being served to the rescue teams. Our volunteers stayed the whole day and provided lunch and dinner. They were deployed again this morning and will stay through lunch.

A big thank you to Opie’s Barbecue for providing the first responders with lunch AND dinner!
