Finished in Flagstaff, (for now)…


This is Alan and Brenda from Flagstaff. Long time Disaster Relief volunteers, they stopped by to give us a hand, sifting through the rubble…
DR Patty adds to the growing finds from the home…
Norm, in her happy place. Searching for something of value to the property owners. She did really well today, finding a prized necklace…
Necklace find…
I hesitate to display this photo. This comes from the inside of a nose, that has been in the confines of a state of the art N95 mask! If you still wear a mask, thinking you are safe, here’s your proof. N equals one experiment. If this mask cannot keep ash from you, it’s not keeping a much smaller particle illness from you…

Return to Flagstaff…


We slapped our magnetic signs on the truck and made our way back to Flagstaff. Back to FBC Flagstaff. Back to dusty, dirty work of ash out recovery. Back to service for the Lord.
We started early afternoon, worked for a couple of hours. We found quite a lot of items for such a short time.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, we could not search this property on our first trip to the Tunnel Fire.

Tunnel Fire- Final Entry…


Thanks to DR Sue for snapping this shot of me, operating the skid steer, trying to move one of four heavy bath tubs…
Not sure if this was the result of my driving, but the track came off and put the machine out of service for about a half day…
Warm day, we kept chasing the shade…
Our state director, Patty shares a light moment with Ray, our liaison from Coconino County. Ray has been the best government worker ever…
It was our pleasure to serve the Lord…

Tunnel Fire, Day 12…


Our team made these pile of metal, from just one property…
Everyone is hard working…
You can’t tell from this photo, but this is pure dust, about six inches deep and every time the skid steer drove over it, it created a dust storm…
We used wheel barrows to load this much…
DR Mike, takes a well deserved break…
It’s not all work, sometimes you just have to enjoy a cool beverage…
DR Dennis and DR Mike do ministry with the property owner…
Before AZDR and…
After AZDR, we worked almost two full days and a few hours tomorrow will complete the property…

Tunnel Fire Day 9…


No assessments for us today. We have a few more to look at, but we can’t get in contact with the property owners. So, we tackled this house…
This is the after site…
We made this. Norm and I had to move this tin roof by hand to get to the area where we needed to sift. Norm already found gold, silver and coins. More sifting of this home tomorrow…
