In preparation of hurricane Irma, Central’s NJROTC cadets jumped at the opportunity to help the community. With only one day notice, the cadet in charge, Alexa Fiore, collected a group of twenty to volunteer. The event was held at the fire rescue stations 1 and 2, where the cadets spent their time filling sandbags for those living in low lying areas and assisting in carrying the bags to the vehicles. Several hundred of sandbags were distributed in the course of three days prior to the expected storm. Meanwhile, six cadets were asked to aid in evacuating special needs, elderly, and other victims from their unstable homes to the local evacuation shelters. With the impending storm, soon to sweep through the area, the cadets have been instrumental to the community in preparation of Irma.
