Simantel is proud to work with the inspiring nonprofit organization, The First Response Team of America. In 2012, the Team helped over 260,000 people nationwide and saved communities across the country roughly $2.5 million in cleanup costs in response to the unpredictability of Mother Nature.

Thanks to donations and formed partnerships (both new and existing), the Team was able to respond to six national disasters in 12 cities, including the devastating aftermath left by Hurricane Isaac, Superstorm Sandy and many more. Without this support—and the support from its donors—The First Response Team of America could not afford to respond to large-scale disasters and help communities in need.
