Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief feeding unit ordered to stand down after 'post-tropical' cyclone Sandycomments (2)

November 1, 2012


Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief teams were put on standby on Oct. 31 for relief after "post-tropical" cyclone Sandy blew through the Northeast, leaving devastation and loss of life.

As of Nov. 4, a request from Area Command/NAMB ordered Alabama Baptists' feeding unit to stand down. The state feeding unit, feeding personnel, child care personnel, communications personnel (83 personnel in total) and related support equipment are returning to Alabama. Please note that multiple state conventions with feeding units engaged have been ordered to return home. 

Recovery teams are proceeding on into the disaster area as requested by Area Command/NAMB.

    I saw a post on FB that said Baptist disaster relief teams from AL were turned away. Is this true?

    Hello Barbara,

    The teams were not actually turned away, but the feeding team and a few others are no longer needed.

    From the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions: "Following a request from Area Command/NAMB ... (the) feeding unit (has been ordered) to stand down. The state feeding unit, feeding personnel, child care personnel, communications personnel, and related support equipment are returning to Alabama. Please note that multiple state conventions with feeding units engaged have been ordered to return home. Cleanup (and) recovery teams are proceeding on into the disaster areas as requested by Area Command/NAMB."

    Thank you for your question.
