Review for Humanity Road, Boydton, VA, USA
Humanity Road has forever shaped the way the Coast Guard conducts disaster response operations and impacted my life much more personally.
During Hurricane Harvey, I had the chance to work alongside the team from Humanity Road as we worked to collect “911 social media posts” from hurricane survivors. The Coast Guard prides itself in making sure no call goes unanswered, and with Harvey’s massive scale, we needed all hands on deck to make sure we lived up to this. Throughout the week-long deployment, we collected over 1000 search and rescue cases involving 5200+ survivors from Facebook and Twitter. Humanity Road does noble work, and people are alive today because of their efforts.
On a more personal level, Humanity Road leaders Chris Thompson and Cat Graham became mentors and role models during the response efforts. The lessons I took away from their leadership will forever touch my life. I am eternally grateful.
