ToolBank Disaster Services Update
Our ToolBank Disaster Services Team is in the initial stages of preparing to deploy tools to help with recovery efforts in the San Bernadino Mountain area after they received and excessive amount of snowfall. In late February, the area was hit with more than 100 inches of snow. Search and rescue has been slow moving due to the amount of snow and once that process has ended, TDS will be sending tools to help with the following stages of relief. TDS Director, Bill Hess, is planning on purchasing tools, getting them branded in our signature ToolBank blue, and then shipping them out to the impacted area with the support of our sponsors at UPS. Tool lending continues in Sacramento to aid with wildfire repairs / recovery as we look for warehouse space for our operations.
