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.
An important part of what we do at Doodie Calls is disaster relief. For the past couple weeks, we’ve been providing portable restroom trailers, shower trailers, and standard portables. 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.
Doodie Calls is primarily a south and central Florida based company and we typically serve 34 southernmost counties here. We expand that service area as far as possible when disaster strikes. We work hard to serve as far west as Texas and as far north as Tennessee whenever necessary.
Doodie Calls has training and experience working with state and federal agencies, plus the private sector, for disaster relief and response. We have the ability to accommodate our services and products to meet the shifting needs of our community.
This extends to site location, temporary set ups, and base camp style designs. Including preparation, staffing and logistics for mobilization to demobilization of portable units and trailers. Our understanding of procedural administration enables Doodie Calls to be ready for an immediate response. We have the ability to mobilize quickly to respond to stated emergencies.
More commonly, we have helped with disaster relief when hurricanes strike and devastate the southeastern portion of the United States. This experience allows us to be available and knowledgeable of other emergencies as well. At Doodie Calls, we are the leading industry for disaster relief and emergency portable sanitation services.
Our ability to be dependable and honest allows us to have built strategic relationships. We’ve invested in resources with the mission of responding to our community’s needs quickly. Especially, in the unfortunate event of any emergency or natural disaster.
At Doodie Calls, we understand the severity of getting sanitation equipment on site and set up immediately after a storm or disaster. We have 9 storage yards which are deliberately placed throughout the Gulf Coast and Southeastern United States. The location of these yards is critical for us to carry out an urgent response to the communities needs. Allowing us to be on-site with necessary equipment in 24 hours or less.
Our fleet consists of various restroom, shower, laundry and bunkhouse trailer options. Our ‘plastics’ or ‘port o potties’ disaster fleet consists of over 2,000 new inventory portable toilets. Including standard units, handicap-accessible ADA units, as well as flushable units with sinks. Also including over 500 hand wash stations, sanitizer stations and holding & water tanks.
The Doodie Calls trailers range in size from 8 feet to 32 feet long and can service crowds from about 150 to over 1,000 people.
Unlike many of our competitors, we only offer the best. We use Satellite Suites and JAG luxury restroom trailers because they are state of the art and match our standards. At Doodie Calls we truly take pride in what we do. We consistently make sure that all of our work will surpass your expectations, even in hard times.
Doodie Calls is honored to serve our communities whenever we are needed. We know it’s not the most glamorous service, but we know how important it can be in the event of an emergency and disaster.
We take great pleasure in giving great customer service with special attention on safety and dependability. In case of a disaster, construction work site, special event, or wedding, Doodie Calls offers hygienic and sanitized solutions.

It’s so good to know that there is support available during tragic times when everything is destroyed by hurricane or disaster. I can’t imagine what it must be to go through something like that.
This is a really great service you are offering. I am sure all the rescue workers and other people on site are really grateful.
I think it’s incredible that you’ve provided disaster relief for the surfside condo collapse. The jag luxury restroom trailers sound much nicer than the traditional ports-potty. God bless you.
Oh, wow. I’ve never thought about this aspect of cleanup after a disaster before. I’m so glad your company is there to help with the cleanup.
I’ve never really thought about the logistics of cleanup in this way before. I guess it makes sense, though. All that destruction leaves behind a lot of mess.
Condolences with these events, I hope they are fine and got a proper assistance

I’ve heard the news of the collapse and it was utterly heartbreaking. I’m glad that you were there to provide aid.
There are so many people at cleanup sites doing work to help clear and even look for those who may have been trapped. I can’t believe I’ve never thought about how they’d go to the restroom before.
Nniiicceeee…you are quite the timely package of a disaster relief company everyone needs to have on speed-dial, Doodie-Calls! I must recommend you further! I hope you aren’t so expensive to have on a pay-roll, eh!
I am so glad to hear that, that there are organizations who exist to give disaster rescue and relief. My country is prone to typhoon and other natural calamities so I guess we need companies likie Doodie Calls.
It’s good to have a go to company for this. Although sometimes overlooked, it is really thoughtful to look after with our volunteer’s, rescuers and victims. Sometimes small things means a lot!
