POST FALLS-- A company based out of Post Falls, Idaho is helping Gulf Coast locals clean up Isaac's mess.

Post Falls staffing firm Command Center has hired people affected by Hurricane Isaac and puts them to work.

Command Center has about 800 people from around New Orleans working as temporary hires. They're focusing on clean up left by all this water.

Command Center has experience in helping clean-up after disasters. The company assisted residents in Joplin, Missouri after a tornado devastated the area, and in the Gulf after the B.P. oil spill.

Dave Wallace of Command Center told KREM 2 on Wednesday he was in Mississippi waiting for the storm to move. He planned to head in the New Orleans area.

Wallace said once the storm cleared, it would take about four days for his crews to get into the field. He said he will oversee about 1,200 hires from the Gulf. Their primary mission will be to clean-up after the storm.

KREM 2 News was told several crews were,  as of Wednesday, waiting to get into some areas of the Gulf to work.
