International lends Katrina victims a hand
Oct 1, 2005 12:00 PM
International Truck and Engine Corp has offered use of a 7,750-square-foot facility in Shreveport LA to serve as a logistics center or staging area to help distribute emergency relief supplies to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
The company has offered 10 dump trucks for immediate deployment to deliver supplies or to begin removing debris as the region digs itself out and assesses damages from Katrina. In collaboration with the United States Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command (TACOM), International Truck and Engine also has made available five water tankers to carry up to 5,500 gallons of drinkable water to victims in various locations, with the potential for significantly increasing the number of tankers available.
