District 1200 EVAG

Emergency Volunteer Action Group in Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire

EVAG volunteers on a mission during storm Emma

YOUR District 1200 group which plans for Rotarians & Inner Wheelers to aid the Civic Authorities – EVAG – has received a message of Congratulations from the Somerset County Council Emergency planners – because we responded to every request during Storm Emma.

EVAG is a derivative of the enormous aid efforts when we helped those who were so badly affected by the flooding on the Somerset Levels in 2014 YOU AND INNER WHEEL assisted householders and managed warehouses.

The organising group formed ourselves into EVAG – THE GROUP WHICH PLANS FOR ASSISTANCE IN THE FUTURE - in any number of types of emergency.

We plan, train, and we serve on the planning groups of the 3 County Councils – Somerset, Wiltshire & Dorset.

EVAG and Storm Emma in March 2018

YOU have always responded to our calls. During Storm Emma we set up our 24hr response centre. Every time we received a call we called out to YOU and we never had to call twice – we found volunteers within 30 minutes each time; we notified the authorities and they said –‘Thank you. GO!’ YOU then set out to achieve the Mission. 100% success.

What does ‘EVAG’ stand for? How does it work? Who are they? How can YOU become involved?

Well, we want to explain & inform...and the best means is to come to YOUR Clubs to give a talk.   Please invite us!
