After spending 13 hours responding to over 100 emergency calls during the remnants of Hurricane Ida, our volunteers returned to their own homes on Thursday morning to survey and clean up storm damage or their own. After learning that a few of our members received major flooding inside of their homes with water filling their basements and into their first floor living spaces, Alert Captain Mike McCarraher, then organized a weekend work detail for our volunteers to assist our other fellow members who sustained major flooding damage.
At 8:00 AM, 21 volunteers traveled throughout Downingtown Borough to four of our members homes to help their families with removing contents and water out of their homes. All four homes received major flood damage to each basement and first floor.
