GRAVE NEWS FROM THE FIRE STRICKEN DUCK VALLEY INDIAN RESERVATION IN NEVADA



There is a dire emergency at the Duck Valley Indian Reservation in
Owyhee Nevada. It's a very isolated reservation on the Nevada/Idaho
border. One of the many fires that have been burning out of control
in the west devastated this little village and people are suffering
without water and electricity for 5 day now with no relief in sight.
Food is going bad since there is no electricity since all the power
poles are burned to a crisp. The elderly and the children are taking
a direct hit as water supplies dwindle and food is in short supply.
Since there is no power the heat is taking its toll and there is
human suffering since there has been no aid. If ever there was a time
for The People to pull together it's now.

So give these people a chance to survive in this blistering heat.
Give them a call and see what you can do. These are our brothers and
sister who are literally baking in the hot Nevada sun. If nothing is
done like soon, there will be fatalities as the elderly will soon
expire from the heat and the lack of water.

This is a human tragedy in the making and they need help now. Do you
think the feds will help them? Well it's been 5 days now and do the
math. Lives will soon be lost if help does not get there soon.
Please, Please contact them anddo your bit for our relations………….

why isn't this national news? Why isn't more being done by the red cross? Is it that the US only helps on foreign territory & not on our own shores?

Where in the world is the Red Cross??? Where are the Fema people??? They should be here helping these people-now!!! Where is the local communities that surround the reservation, they should be banneding together to help these folks out. This makes me so angry!! Has anyone contacted the the reservation fire department to see if they have contacted the IAFF and asked for aid and contacted the  local fire union for aid for these people???? *soapbox**soapbox* Unbelievable!!!
