Surfside Condo Collapse: Doodie Calls and Disaster Relief

The 12-story condo collapse in Surfside, Florida has been a heartbreaking disaster that the whole world has been closely following. Due to the nature of the collapse, it has taken search and rescue weeks to find and identify victims for their families and loved ones. The search and rescue teams have been working around the clock to help move this process along as quickly as possible. Disaster relief funds and other organizations are raising money for families who have lost loved ones in this tragedy.

As well as finding and identifying victims, they are also recovering possessions for the victims’ families. This is an important way for their families to feel connected, especially during a tragic, unexpected loss. The process of sifting through the 14 million pounds of concrete and rubble is a delicate process that is estimated to take 14 to 21 days.

This is primarily for the search and rescue teams on the ground at the condo collapse in Surfside, Florida. We will continue to provide services on the scene, as long as it is needed. It is our honor to help our community, even in this small way.
