Forecast for Ike: Ike is not backing down! Attention Volunteers.

"All neighborhoods ... and possibly entire coastal communities ... will be inundated during the peak storm tide," the weather service warned. "Persons not heeding evacuation orders in single family one- or two-story homes will face certain death."

It seems now with Ike gaining strength every hour, the people of the gulf coast are once again right in danger's path. The top priority of the nation is to get as many people out of harm's way as possible, but the danger does not end when Ike's winds die down, in fact, that is just the beginning. We were all hoping Ike would lose its fury before it reached landfall, but the forecast is just the opposite.

Always, in the midst of tragedy, people of our nation bind together and work with one another to help the victims. Our request is simple: Protect the Volunteers!

It is very important to be sure that each and every volunteer has the right information concerning life saving vaccinations; especially if they are Ike first responders, entering flooded areas, or engaged in reconstruction work. These vaccines would include Hepatitis A & B, Influenza, Tetanus/Diptheria/Pertussis and Typhoid for water exposure.
