The group faced the same situation during Hurricane Irene.

"I think that with Ida we're going to be able to get back up on our feet a lot sooner just because everyone from the community has been such a huge help. They've been so generous with spending time down here and volunteering with getting everything out of the building," says Caitlin Cook, second lieutenant medical, CFAS.
Their headquarters was flooded with 6 inches of water.
A GoFundMe is currently up which is already halfway towards a $20,000 goal.
