Heiden Inc. donates grapple to Non-Profit First Response Team of America
Manitowoc, Wisconsin (September 25, 2009)
Under the leadership of Matt Jacobson, (president of Heiden Inc.) the company has donated a trash grapple to help the efforts of First Response Team of America. First Reponse Team of America is a nonprofit disaster relief company, founded by Tad Agoglia. Mounted on a hydraulic loader truck, the grapple can quickly clear a path for other emergency equipment to enter disaster scenes.
When natural disasters strike, several critical days can pass before local authorities or federal agencies can begin to assess the damage, and start the daunting tasks of restoring order and establishing rescue and recovery operations. People in desperate need are left stranded, alone, and in danger.
First Response Team of America deploys nationwide to assist communities in the first critical hours when safety is of premium importance. Using heavy equipment and advanced technology, they identify and access disaster sites throughout the United States, bringing help and hope to those in need. All free of charge.
Tad Agoglia, founder of Disaster Recovery Solutions' First Response Team, surrounds himself with a broad range of experts in their respective fields. He works with these visionaries and strategists for development, identification and building of America's first self-sufficient national response team equipped with all the specialized heavy equipment and technology necessary for rapid and reliable disaster response.
Prior to May 2007, Disaster Recovery Solutions was a for-profit, disaster clean up contracting company owned and operated by Tad Agoglia. Tad had used Heiden grapples in the past and had a proven track record for durability. Agoglia is so impressed with the trash grapple that he was “going to get a Heiden even if he had to buy it”.
