Hey Michigan, members of Region 5 will soon be convening in Muskegon County after straight line winds ripped through the area earlier this week causing significant tree and property damage. Furthermore, heavy rains led to widespread flood damage.

We’re deploying a team of sawyers, Palantir specialists, and other able-bodied workhorses to Western Michigan to manhandle some downed trees and muck.

Regional leaders will be standing up the FOB in the local Home Depot parking lot and supporting the City of Muskegon and local emergency response agencies with cleanup efforts. Currently, volunteers within 300 miles of Muskegon are being recruited to support Operation: Silversides. Members of Region 5 are encouraged to visit OrgAction for more information and to register their availability. Let’s get dirty.
