Get a Behind-the-Scenes Read about Deb Harrington!

In the world of Disaster Response and planning things happen very quickly and our Disaster Response Volunteers need to be prepared to report to the scene and offer assistance. They need to have the correct paperwork in their bags and supplies—comfort kits, sweat suits, quilts in their vehicles.

We have a solid core of 50 Emergency Responders that cover the 10 Counties that make up the BIG 10 Area. Deb Harrington has developed processes and methods to keep all of us straight. She maintains casework files locally so help can continue being provided and makes sure that copies of financial records are sent to the Milwaukee office for payments. She has reorganized the files in the Disaster Office so the Team Captains can come in and restock with no problem. She accepted the position of co-lead of Mass Care and is Captain of a response team that is on call every 6 weeks from 6pm to 6am.

Deb has been very patient and kind no matter what is asked of her. She is a talented smart business woman who has put her skills to good use working behind the scenes. The whole team knows to go to Deb to find anything that is needed. This is such a vital role because once a call comes in everyone and everything is moving quickly and more times than not something changes. Deb is always there to support her fellow volunteers.
