Napa Long Term Recovery BEGINS!

There are 22 houses identified in Napa with compromised roofs that have not yet been repaired after the earthquake last year and will suffer permanent damage from rain water leaking into the house during the next rain. We plan to put tarp material furnished by FEMA over these roofs to protect them until we can deploy repair teams later this year for more permanent repairs.

We are looking for volunteers who want to assist in this 1st effort. Safety is always our primary concern with all of our work team efforts. Everyone participating will be required to attend a training with FEMA approved procedures for providing temporary shielding for homes compromised by a disaster to protect them from the weather until permanent repairs can be made. The class is a hands-on session of 2 hours to cover basic techniques and practical experience.

The mandatory class will be on Saturday, August 8th from 9:00 - 11:00 in Napa at a location to be determined and is led by certified trainer from United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

Topics include:

  • What different types of tarps are available?
  • Tarp in relation to location of damage
  • Tarp in relation to location of damage
  • How to work around protrusions
  • Issues with non-shingle roofs
