FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Community Response Task Force welcomes Presenting Sponsor, ServiceMaster

Humble Area, Texas, Harris County – February 2017

The Community Response Task Force (C.R.T.F.) was organized following the disasters caused by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita, in 2005. These hurricanes struck the Gulf Coast and drove hordes of people from their homes. It became apparent that governmental services alone could not provide the needed sheltering and support for the people displaced by the storms. With people pouring into local hotels, churches and other shelters, chaos reigned. A local group of volunteers formed the C.R.T.F. to provide resources and coordinate communications among organizations, businesses and individual volunteers who wanted to help. Since its formation, C.R.T.F. has increased membership of providers and responders to include seven specific areas: churches, community, education, government, medical, - schools, and other.

As Presenting Sponsor ServiceMaster allows C.R.T.F. to increase the span of services and educate the public regarding planning and actions in the event of various types of disaster.

Brad Hollibaugh, ServiceMaster’s Managing Director, believes sponsoring C.R.T.F enhances ServiceMaster as a good corporate neighbor, "Disaster and damage recovery is ServiceMaster's core business and what we do best. We have been doing it in our region since 1993. The C.R.T.F. is a valuable organization when disaster strikes. It is only natural that we get involved and be an active participant. By sponsoring the C.R.T.F. we not only help them with their mission but it allows us to also be good corporate neighbors and help make a difference."

C.R.T.F. is a networking group of numerous backgrounds and is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Our members consist of State, County, City Emergency Management, churches, business owners, organizations, disaster relief groups, volunteers and many others too numerous to mention. Our membership covers the north corridor area, Harris, Montgomery, Liberty, and Walker Counties.

C.R.T.F. meets on the odd months, second Friday at 1:00 p.m. at the Atascocita Volunteer Fire Department, Administrative Building, 18425 Timber Forest Dr., Atascocita, TX. The next meeting is scheduled for March 10, 2017.

There is NO membership fees or fees of any kind. To join, attend one of our meetings and request to be added to the membership listing, it's that easy!
