Regions 5 and 7 were activated to respond to storm damage in Saint Louis, MO on 4.11.13. TR’s team of nine volunteers arrived in Florissant, MO and liaised with local authorities and other relief organizations active in the area.

The initial response focused on identifying work orders in the area and preparing accordingly. TR created five orders for the day and began debris removal operations, focusing mainly on chainsawing downed trees. Several work orders required the use of heavy equipment, which TR will procure in the coming days.
