Ground Control team deployed to Dominica for specialist relief works with Disaster Arborist Response Team

Last month, one of Ground Control’s arborists Dave Uden has teamed up with DART (Disaster Arborist Response Team), a charity dedicated to delivering specialist disaster relief to countries in need.

Disaster Arborist Response Team

DART is a UK registered charity of 25 to 30 volunteers; established to help professionals from the UK Arboricultural Industry donate their skills, energy and experience to help clear fallen trees and debris following natural disasters around the world.

On 6th October, Dave and his team flew out to the Caribbean island of Dominica for 2 weeks to help clear-up the devastation of Hurricane Maria. Tasked by the Dominican Government’s Emergency Operations Centre, the team played a key role in clearing roads blocked by fallen trees to facilitate the delivery of aid to isolated communities.

A total of 7 volunteers were deployed to deliver disaster response works, in addition to providing training to locals in safe chainsaw use, aiming to create a more resilient community moving forward. The team donated all chainsaws and PPE to the new operators for their continued safety, with the hope that a larger number of people will be able to offer support and help keep access routes clear in times of need.

DART is funded purely by public donations and corporate sponsorship; Ground Control is delighted to be supporting.
