Resourcing for Disaster Relief

I've run into a small group of people that love to be mobilized for disaster relief. This is a tricky subject because certainly, when disaster strikes, resources are needed. Sometimes, it's just plain manual labor. Mostly though, my take is that it has to be very specialized people.

In either case, if something like this appeals to you and you are local to the DC area, National Community Church is hosting part of some formal training to become a Hope Force Reservist – eligible for rapid deployment (within 24-48 hours) into a disaster event.
