Bobcat Company helps defend North Dakota communities from record flooding

Agriculture.com Staff 03/26/2009 @ 9:30am

In response to the flood threat in the Fargo, North Dakota, area, more than 100 Bobcat employees have volunteered around the clock to help fill and place sandbags, build flood walls along the wate'’s edges, provide meals and answer phones at the volunteer center. Bobcat's donation of more than two dozen machines and 40 volunteer operators has accelerated National Guard efforts to more efficiently fill a portable floodwall system throughout the city.

Employees in Gwinner are ramping up volunteer efforts as well to support neighboring communities battling overland flooding and washed out roads. Employees are volunteering around Gwinner and in the Red River Valley, operating equipment, participating in sandbagging, and providing food and support to community members. In Bismarck, where the Missouri River has ice jams that have led to unexpected flooding in recent days, employees are offering assistance to community members and neighbors in sandbagging and evacuation efforts along the river.

Bobcat dealers around North Dakota are stepping up to help their communities as well by supplying equipment and resources toward flood fighting. In addition, many Bobcat customers are volunteering their time and equipment to help protect the community.
