Blake Eastwood volunteering after Jefferson City tornado.

Last week, many of our member-owners and employees experienced devastation from the tornadoes in central and southwest Missouri. This is in addition to those impacted by the flooding going on across Missouri. Our hearts go out to all of those affected. As a rural-Missouri based cooperative, assisting our member-owners and communities in good times and bad is part of our mission.

FCS Financial is donating $5,000 to the American Red Cross of Northern and Central Missouri specifically for tornado relief. In addition to the donation, local FCS Financial employees will receive up to 16 hours of leave to volunteer to assist with tornado cleanup. The normal allocation is 8 hours but we realize this devastation will take additional time.

Blake Eastwood volunteers after Jefferson City tornadoBlake Eastwood, facilities manager, is part of the SAVE Coalition, a division of SHOW-ME Response. After the tornado in Jefferson City, 15-20 SAVE Coalition members were deployed to assess the structural integrity of buildings in Jefferson City. Approximately 500 buildings were assessed. The team placed placards on the buildings identifying the level of damage to the buildings and restricted occupancy when necessary. This information was logged and mapped with GPS and provided to the city.

FCS Financial is proud that Blake was able to utilize his volunteer hours to serve his community in their time of need.

The Missouri Structural Assessment and Visual Evaluation (SAVE) Coalition is a group of volunteer engineers, architects, building inspectors and other professionals that assists the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) with building damage inspections. After a disaster, SAVE volunteers are trained to move quickly to determine which buildings are safe to use.
