On Sunday, December 21st, local NYC charity 'City Santa' delivered toys and other items to children at shelters in Brooklyn and the Bronx. Using vehicles provided by the American Red Cross in Greater New York (ARC/GNY) and drivers provided by DART, the operation went well and the items were delivered. 

DART is always looking for ways to help out those in need. This was another great example of the outstanding partnership we share with the American Red Cross in Greater New York.b2ap3_thumbnail_CSARC.jpg

Many areas in Buffalo, NY received over 7' of lake effect snow the week before Thanksgiving. This combined with warmer weather the following week presented many scary scenarios for the residents and responders alike. As always, Red Cross was ready, willing and able to respond and FDNY DART was right alongside to help.

With the prospect of massive flooding issues from snow melt, a request came in for 2 trucks with 4 members to bring additional shelter supplies from the Greater New York region. Immediately, the warehouse in Middletown, NY was put on standby as were the members of DART.

On Monday, November 24th at 0600 hrs, members of the team met at the warehouse to bring 500 cots and 1,000 blankets to the Buffalo chapter of the Red Cross using two 27' 4x4 box trucks.

Another great example of a powerful and highly effective partnership in action.
