Services and Equipment for NYC recovery
- To whom it may concern:
RE: services and equipment for NYC recovery effort
I wish to offer my services at the NYC disaster scene for body
recovery. I am the owner of A1 Saver Services located in Bergen
County N.J. which is about 20 minutes away from the trade center
area. I have exhausted every contact number that I can call and am
asking for assistance in helping us get into the city to volunteer
our services or for contact information of those that help get in.
My company specializes in large animal carcass and biohazard fecal
removals. Both my assistant and myself can provide 8-12 hours per
evening or night shifts and some day shifts for as long as needed at
no charge as volunteers.
We are both trained medics with morgue experience. I was the N.J.
Soldier / Combat Medic of the year for the N.J. Army National Guard.
We are self sustained and have our own equipment and would need no
resources from any agency.
We use 6 hour rechargeable battery pack forced air full face triple
hepa filter respirators to prevent inhalation of airborne pathogens
as well as being able to work in hazardous, odorous environments.
We have our own portable electric generators, air compressors, air
chisels, sawzalls and other tools.
We are also equipped with full suits, hard hats, to the elbow leather
gloves, knee pads, boots, medic kits etc.
We are also fully insured with 1 Million dollars in liability and
I am fully aware that due to the number of casualties that are within
the debris at the site that it is becoming difficult for the recovery
workers due to the odor. Insect and rodent infestation will be
starting soon and this will also affect the workers. We are
professionally experienced and equipped to handle this situation and
can aid with the recovery of human remains.
Please feel free to forward this letter to anyone that can authorize
our presence or to contact me at any time, 24 hours a day . We can
respond immediately. If needed, I can provide references and contact
information from local government officials as to my company and our
On a personal note, I have a friend who is a Port Authority police
officer that is still there in the debris as well as two other people
from my town that I know who are lost. I am desperately seeking to
provide any hands on assistance at the scene in NYC in the slight
possibility of finding and bringing these people home so their
families have some closure.
