Chainsaw teams provide a practical service and spiritual ministry for homeowners during recovery.
Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief chainsaw teams are trained to do the job quickly and safely.
Chainsaw volunteers provide a valuable service to storm survivors at no charge. These volunteers focus on cutting trees that are on houses and that block people in by covering driveways. They are trained to do this job safely and efficiently. Disaster Relief chainsaw teams have an assessor who properly identifies and prioritizes jobs for teams. Property owners must give written consent for chainsaw teams to work on their property.
Since many people rush to an area and charge large fees to remove trees, it is a goal of Disaster Relief volunteers to get into an area and begin assessment and tree removal as soon as possible. This effort provides valuable ministry opportunities and protects homeowners when they are often quite vulnerable.
