On September 10, 2011, eight members from our Ready Team – Crewmembers who volunteer their time and energy to be trained to provide care and support in emergency situations – were deployed for seven days to support the American Red Cross with numerous shelter operations that were opened up to house residents from the Binghamton, N.Y. area. These residents were forced to flee their homes that were destroyed by raging flood waters following Hurricane Irene.

We salute our caring Ready Team Crewmembers for going above and beyond the call of duty to help those in need.
