The LSCU’s tri-state area, with coastal borders, is always alert to the potential for a hurricane disaster. It’s difficult to believe that already this year, we have worked our way through the traditional alphabet in naming tropical storms and are beginning on the Greek alphabet.
A new resource is available to credit unions in our states and others. The National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation), in collaboration with PSCU, has launched a new CUAid Disaster Recovery app to streamline and connect credit union organizations with one another when disasters strike to quickly coordinate resources.
The LSCU is encouraging all credit unions in Alabama, Florida and Georgia to fill out this form right away so that it will be available if they do need it.
The Disaster Recovery application serves as a “matching” service for credit unions to source and share emergency resources, such as generators, mobile branches and more to get credit unions back up and running as quickly as possible.
For questions related to the CUAid app, please contact the Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The CUAid Disaster Recovery App, generously funded by CUNA Mutual Group and FIS, was developed by CU-APPS. As one of the three key pillars of business, the Foundation provides disaster relief to the credit union movement through its CUAid program. CUAid is designed to harness the collective generosity of the movement to provide grant assistance, and this app serves as an extension of that program.
