As of today, Burners Without Borders has aided 38 homeowners in Union Beach by demolishing remnants of their homes, and removing debris from their lots. These homes, as well as over 50 projects scheduled, would cost homeowners on average $10,000 each to remove.
Keeping track of the sheer number of details necessary for demolition these homes requires the daily efforts of several Burners Without Borders crew members here in Union Beach. We coordinate with homeowners for several weeks prior to scheduling the demolition of a home site, confirming shut-off of utilities, insurance assessments and permits. A mistake in this complex process could be an additional setback for this community, as well as catastrophic for our crew.
We track these projects not only by spreadsheet, but an interactive map produced through BatchGeo.com — We use this map daily in both the office and the field to locate our next project sites, and share this information with the Borough of Union Beach, FEMA representatives, and the BWB community worldwide.
