As many business in the Tri-Cities are boarded up with entrances blocked to prevent looting and destruction, a local Facebook group has started to DEFEND THE TRI. You have to be accepted into the group in order to post information and view other posts. According to their Facebook page, "The purpose of this group is to raise awareness of local businesses that might need help protecting themselves and their business. Invite those willing to help." You'll need to answer a few questions before you are accepted into the group like if you are willing to stand outside of a business and defend it. Click below if you would like to join:
