BEDFORD HILLS--Soldiers from the 827th and 1156th EN’s, comprising Task Force 204th, with assistance from the NYG discuss safely removing a downed tree on Croton Lakes Road, in Bedford, NY. The Guard’s primary role is to clear debris to allow for passage of Fire, Ambulance, and Police vehicles.

Upon receipt of a request originating from Westchester OEM, Joint Task Force Sandy, based at Camp Smith assigned the mission to TF 204th to assist with tree removal in over a dozen townships. Soldiers receive prioritized areas of operations and are moving from town to town once ConEd ensures lines are de-energized.
