About Me
cleaning up after Mother Nature

I have worked with a disaster recovery group for the last ten years. We travel from place to place to help towns recover after natural disasters. I have assisted in the clean-up efforts of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes and fires. Each of these terrible disasters has taught me something that I hadn't already known about cleaning up and rebuilding after a disaster. That is why I created this blog. Hopefully, you will find what you need to know to help your family, neighbors or friends clean up and rebuild after Mother Nature creates a disaster area that is beyond your wildest dreams.
