Soldiers with the 3670th Maintenance Company ground support platoon, 82 Brigade, Oregon Army National Guard, helped Oregon communities prepare for natural disasters and emergencies by repairing some equipment.
On Friday, Soldiers trained City Water Works employees in Seaside how to maintain older military generators, just in case they are needed as a backup during an emergency.
There are about six different communities that request maintenance and training support throughout the year. Cities like Seaside may not always be able to purchase brand new backup generators, so that's where the local relationships with the Oregon Army National Guard and the 3670th Maintenance Company help out.
Soldiers hope to continue the program as long as they are needed.
