District 1200 EVAG
Emergency Volunteer Action Group in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire
YOUR District 1200 group which plans for Rotarians & Inner Wheelers to aid the Civic Authorities – EVAG – has received a message of Congratulations from the Somerset County Council Emergency planners – because we responded to every request during Storm Emma.
EVAG is a derivative of the enormous aid efforts when we helped those who were so badly affected by the flooding on the Somerset Levels in 2014 – YOU AND INNER WHEEL assisted householders and managed warehouses.
The organising group formed ourselves into EVAG – THE GROUP WHICH PLANS FOR ASSISTANCE IN THE FUTURE - in any number of types of emergency.
We plan, train, and we serve on the planning groups of the 3 County Councils – Somerset, Wiltshire & Dorset.
EVAG and Storm Emma in March 2018
YOU have always responded to our calls. During Storm Emma we set up our 24hr response centre. Every time we received a call we called out to YOU and we never had to call twice – we found volunteers within 30 minutes each time; we notified the authorities and they said –‘Thank you. GO!’ YOU then set out to achieve the Mission. 100% success.
