With these floods starting to occur more often, perhaps there is something that we could do. Maybe John and the local Gateway Cats might even consider this. I dont see any reason why we couldnt contact the appropriate agency to offer our help with our boats. Maybe, we might have to go through some sort of certification to show our on the water skills that can be used for rescue and or flood relief. Most all of us have the boats that can handle the flooded conditions with radios for communication. Even if we were able to save one life, the effort would be worth it.
