DOVER, NH- While the Granite state may have escaped Sandy’s wraith, those in both New York and New Jersey weren’t as lucky, as a large majority of residents in both states are still picking up the piece of their lives, and are doing so with help from New Hampshire Fire Fighters.
10 Firefighters from across New Hampshire were part of a FEMA response team deployed to New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Among those 10 was Lt. Chris Jacques from Dover who spent nearly a week in storm ravaged New York City.
According to Jacques upon arriving in the city, he was amazed at the level of devastation which Sandy left behind.
"Just buildings flat...they were just picked right up off their foundation and just pushed blocks away from where they were on the beach.”
Meanwhile back in New Hampshire Firefighters from Nashua are collecting supplies and donations for victims of Hurricane and ask the public for any help they might be able to offer in the form of clothing, blankets, toiletries and diapers.
