Outfit the Trailer

Part of CBC Response Team’s preparation for crisis events involves procuring and maintaining critical equipment. Our goal is to be able to outfit as many as (4) 4 person crews working simultaneously in situations like storm cleanup, flood demolition, first responder support, and security. To that end, we have outfitted a 24 ft trailer that is stocked with tools and supplies to support operations and is always in a state of readiness.

The team does require consumable goods to be stocked from time to time and the Amazon link below is available if you’d like to contribute.
