Region Five focused on sandbag operations for the Janesville City service today. Sandbags built today will be utilized tomorrow as the team and other local authorities will sandbag the river wall in downtown Janesville to prevent flooding.

Concurrently, TR members will assist homeowners in preparing for the floods by supplying and directly sandbagging homes. The team has also made of list of homes closest to the flood banks and will focus efforts there.

We’re still in need of a few volunteers. If you are in the area, make sure register your availability on OrgAction ASAP.
