Join S.W.E.E.T - The So What Else Emergency Team is a group of community volunteers who are willing to assist during disaster events in Montgomery County. We are an active communication chain that works together with the COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster-- you can check out the COAD website here). We have been building the community emergency responders vision for almost two years now, and the team is incredibly grateful for your interest.
