September 8, 2012 is our next opportunity to work on a project for the Presbyterian Disaster Response Team.
Two 20 ft trailers will be on-site at SMPC for hands-on cleaning and painting. The trailers will be used ultimately for medical, transportation or shower facilities.

In 2011 members of SMPC refurbished two 28 ft bathroom trailers for the Presbyterian Disaster Response Team.
The two trailers were initially retrofitted a few years ago to provide bathroom facilities in disaster areas. They were sent to the New Orleans area following the disaster from Hurricane Katrina. Because there is no longer a need there, the trailers were spruced with paint, minor plumbing and interior repairs. Prior to leaving Charlotte destined for Haiti, the trailers were filled with medical equipment, cots, food and clothing.

In 2010, in conjunction with the Presbytery of Charlotte, SMPC members worked to convert a trailer into an emergency medical response unit. This trailer will be used in disaster areas for evaluating and treating patients. The flexible design of the trailer is such that it can be used for other urgent needs as well.
