In response to the ongoing aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and its impact on the Gulf Region, Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity wants to provide its community with contact emergency information. Specifically:
Police, Firefighters, Ambulance
9-1-1 or 713-884-3131
City of Houston Emergencies
3-1-1 or 713-837-0311
FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency)
Houston American Red Cross
U.S. Coast Gaurd
Stranded in Flood Water
Stranded on a rooftop ONLY (helicopter rescue)
We would also like to encourage members of the Sigma Lambda Beta community to give $5.00 to the Executive Office of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity who in turn will provide this fund in its entirety to the Houston American Red Cross. To make a donation go the the Online Store in the Brother Network and look for Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. In addition, we encourage our members to donate blood through a local blood drive in their area.
Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity has numerous chapters within the effected Gulf Region at Prairie View A&M University, Sam Houston State University, Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi, University of Houston, and University of Houston-Downtown. Our thoughts and prayers are with the effected Brothers, their families along with the Gulf Coast communities as this event unfolds.
