Our Friend Tom Basile lives in Staten Island. His home wasn't affected by the storm but he was
immediately able to begin helping his neighbors. We were able to help him in many ways
immediately after the storm when we deployed for 3 1/2 months after the storm hit.
Tom asked us if we could come back and help him do some more remediation and help with some
rebuilds. We agreed to come and help until something else that we needed to respond to happened.
We showed up and then were called to help with the flooding in Colorado. We had 4 days to spend
helping Tom alongside of some other local volunteers.
While there we were able to remediate two homes and rebuilt a roof truss system on one home.
Tom was able to then use the home that we did the truss system to store building materials to help
