NM WILDFIRES
JUNE 18 - 26, 2024

 

NMBDR responded to Redcross shelters in Roswell and Capitan on June 18.  On the 20th we brought our NMBDR Laundry trailer to Roswell to provide clean clothes for those in shelters as well as Red Cross and SBDR volunteers.  Our NM feeding volunteers responded to ENMU to cook meals for the Roswell shelters. 

 

Our DR neighbors from Arizona sent their Quick Response Kitchen with more volunteers to Roswell to supplement the NM volunteers who were providing thousands of meals each day. Southern Baptists of TX delivered a shower trailer with volunteers for use by those staying in the Roswell RC shelters.  Our NMBDR Shower/Restroom trailer was brought to Roswell for use by our NMBDR volunteers staying at Midway Baptist Church.  

Local Baptist churches FBC and Bethel provided volunteers to help prepare, cook and serve meals. 

The NMBDR Quick Response Kitchen volunteers provided meals in Capitan to the Red Cross Shelters there. 

When the Red Cross shut down the shelters in Capitan and Roswell, all mass feeding was moved to Ruidoso where several shelters were opened for those returning.

 

 

Here are some pictures from Capitan and Roswell.
