The truck team will need to be recruited, team leader chosen, and methods of communication with the team regarding driving schedule and the local Sidewalk Director established. Truck team will be trained in how to set up the truck on site by whomever builds the truck. Mileage record clip board & first aid kit will need to be kept on the truck. Church site for truck storage will need to be evaluated for safety and chosen. Truck location pastor will be given a list of the driver schedule, all truck drivers and related telephone numbers. Site area churches, both UMC and Non-UMC, will be informed as to truck presence and capability with regard to parking and sound levels. A process will need to established regarding reimbursement for fuel costs incurred by drivers and/or truck repair. The frequency of volunteering on this team is only limited to the number of drivers - if the team has 8 drivers, members may end up driving only once in two months.
