When the folks living in the tornado-ravaged communities of Dayton needed help with clean-up earlier this month, Wyoming answered the call. A crew of seven from Wyoming’s Public Works Department headed to the suburb of Beavercreek with two dump trucks and a bobcat to help clear away tree limbs and brush so the people of the community could begin the process of re-building.
“This is some of the worst damage I’ve ever seen,” said Andy Callan, a maintenance worker with Public Works. “We worked two 12-hour days and hauled away more than 50 truckloads of brush and debris. I still feel like we barely made a dent, but the people up there really appreciated the help.”
Wyoming was one many neighboring municipalities that offered manpower and equipment to help the people of Dayton recover.
