Jay DPW Director Chris Garrow secures town generators to the back of a truck as he prepares to transport them to New York City to help with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
continued Douglas said that one generator did not make it all the way to New York City.
“At a rest area, Chris had stopped and they met a couple from downstate that had traveled all the way to Albany to try and find a generator for their home,” Douglas said. “They could not find one, so they were heading back home to do the best they could. Our guys unloaded one of the generators, took the serial number, and told them to call once they were done using it. The lady burst out into tears. They were very grateful. It was another chance we had to help people in their time of need.”
