FirstOnSite is readying our CAT Response Teams in Canada and the US in response to Hurricane Sandy
In order to fulfill our mission of delivering superior restoration services in times of emergency, our FirstOnSite teams are preparing on both sides of the border as Hurricane Sandy approaches.
According to the CBC, “in the US, 50 million people are threatened as Hurricane Sandy is expected to make landfall along the New Jersey coast Monday night and then collide with two other weather systems.
“Southern Ontario, southern Quebec and southwestern Maritimes will experience high wind gusts and periods of heavy rain beginning later today and continuing into Tuesday,” Environment Canada said in a bulletin issued early Monday.
FirstOnSite teams have responded to every major North American natural disaster in recent years, including the F3 Tornado in Goderich, the wildfires that devastated the town of Slave Lake, Alberta, as well as Hurricanes Katrina and Ike.
Our Command and Control response model allows us to bring formidable resources to bear on multiple communities, while maintaining a fast and nimble response. That same response model was used to coordinate the recovery efforts after last year’s F3 tornado in Goderich, Ontario, and the wildfires that devastated the town of Slave Lake, Alberta.
