BOYDTON, Va. - June 6, 2013 - PRLog -- Humanity Road has deployed our rapid response team to Moore, Oklahoma.  The organization will provide coordination and planning support at the Highland Baptist Church to manage an Internet Café helping the public get online. The operation will be equipped by Disaster Tech Lab, managed by Humanity Road and staffed with local volunteers. The effort was recently highlighted by KFOR TV News Channel 4.

“In a catastrophic event, long term loss of power and communications can isolate people from solutions.  As a first of its kind public charity we provide aid in the form of information and technology” said Catherine Graham, Vice President and Operations lead for Humanity Road.  

The Moore deployment marks the third joint deployment between Humanity Road and Disaster Tech Labs. The two organizations most recently completed a deployment in Rockaway New York after Superstorm Sandy created a communications blackout in that area.

“These innovative joint deployments really empower the local community to accelerate their recovery process” said Christine Thompson, President of Humanity Road.

Humanity Road will provide coordination and planning support to manage the local volunteer operation and is expected to be onsite through June 15.
