What we do
When all hope is lost. When confusion reigns. When the only thought on a survivor’s mind is “What now?” That’s the moment the First Response Team arrives, bringing new light to communities in their darkest hours. We fill the gap between the onset of a disaster and the arrival of traditional relief agencies, when too many communities must fend for themselves because the resources necessary for rescue and recovery‚ equipment, tools and personnel‚ are damaged, inaccessible or unavailable.
By studying weather patterns and communicating with leading meteorologists, we’re able to anticipate when and where the next disaster may hit. We position our rapid response team near storm locations nationwide and, when alerted to potential disaster, deploy immediately with our fleet of more than $1 million in specialized disaster response equipment. Our goal is to arrive in the crucial moments following the catastrophe, and our mission is to reduce the time it takes for help to reach those in need‚ so we can join local first responders in saving lives and restoring hope.
As you have seen, natural and man-made disasters are inevitable. They can affect any one of us, at any given moment. Our unique way of responding to these disasters with specialized trucks and equipment is costly. Your donation ensures that our team members are properly-trained and our fleet is ready to respond. Whether it’s deploying our trucks to clear rubble from roads to reach those in need, running our equipment to clear a home for someone without insurance, or fueling our generator to power a shelter, your donation ensures we will be able to deploy and be there for our fellow man when life is at its worst. Donations can be made online through payal, or by check to the address below. All donations are tax deductible.
Because of you, we will be there. Thank you for joining our Team.
