POST FALLS, Idaho-- Local workers traveled to the Gulf Coast to help with clean up after Hurricane Isaac.
A Post Falls-based company called Command Center sent men and woman to the Gulf. The team was on stand by Wednesday, waiting for the storm to let up to begin helping residents clean up and get back to their lives.
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.
