2020 Nashville Tornado Response

The MOVE team was recently in the Nashville, TN area supporting Red Cross Multi-Agency Resource Centers (MARCs) as they provide short-and long-term storm recovery resources to victims of the devastating March 6th Nashville, TN tornados.

The team provided Disaster Services Technology support services (technology support, communications/internet access) to help MARCs provide services such as mental health support, WeGo transit passes, preparedness information and disaster health services, financial and insurance assistance, and more.

17 March – Jay and Steve completed their support of the MARCs and moved back to Disaster Relief Operation (DRO) Headquarters, where they’re working with the DST team to clean and pack up technology equipment that’s being returned as the Red Cross staff out process and go home from the operation.  The on-going work is being transferred to the local Red Cross regional staff.  This means long days for the DST team, which is the last to leave.

14 March – The second day the team traveled to Lebanon, TN to support a Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC), where clients affected by the tornado can come to register for assistance and get needed supplies.

13 March – Steve Kemp and Jay Diepenbrock spent the first day helping solve network connectivity problems, setting up printers, and video streaming for news conferences in Nashville, TN.
