Lending a Helping Hand

On August 25th 2009, J.J. Curran volunteered to help out a family in need of a new roof in Detroit. J.J. Curran’s dispatcher Eric James was contacted earlier in the month by a social worker looking for help setting a tarp on top of a single-family home within the city limits. This three-story dwelling was in dire need of a method to keep rain water from entering the house, providing a dry place for the family to reside.

JJ Curran Volunteers

With the help of five volunteers (Damien Sczepaniak, Rick McComas, Steve Jordano, Norm Bush, John Ryznar) and the donation of two boom trucks we set out to lay tarps over the house in the effort to provide temporary relief from the elements. Working in tandem our crew hoisted up new tarps and materials to secure the tarp to the roof. Making things difficult was the overall condition of the roof and its inability to support any individual of our crew. All work was to be done while suspended above the roof working from man baskets.

After four hours of laying the tarp, securing it to the roof and cutting vent holes our efforts paid off. Not a minute after completing the job it began to rain and continued to rain for the remainder of the week.
