Program Launched To Help NJ Firefighters Recover From Sandy [VIDEO]

During and after hurricane Sandy, firefighters all over New Jersey suffered property damage from the Superstorm, but they put the needs of the community before their own. Now a program has been launched to give them a helping hand.

During a visit to Little Ferry today, Governor Chris Christie announced the establishment of the Firefighter-to-Firefighter Assistance Program.

“It anonymously matches firefighters who need help,” said the Governor, “with other firefighters who are donating their time and investing their treasure in their colleagues. This volunteer assistance initiative provides a broad range of recovery and rebuilding options including demolition, shoveling, plumbing, electrical work, roofing, waterproofing, carpentry.”

The Governor pointed out the initiative, which does not offer financial support, anonymously matches firefighters who need help, with other firefighters who want to volunteer their services.

Firefighters who are interested in participating in the program can go to the DCA’s Division of Fire Safety website to fill out a form to either seek assistance or volunteer their time for those in need.
