CAIRO (AP) If you have an accident or other traffic incident, you might want to take the time to repair the damage, repair the sign and make it look good.
That’s what a new nonprofit group is asking Cali residents to do to help repair signs and street lights that were damaged or knocked down during Hurricane Matthew.
The Cali Red Cross is a non-profit group that is trying to help Calians who need help fixing signs, street lights and other road hazards.
It’s calling on residents to help with repair projects, including fixing broken signs and repairing street lights.
“We’ve seen the signs that were knocked down, so we thought, well, maybe we can help out a little bit by doing the repairs, too,” said Krista G. Bowers, president and CEO of CaliRedCross.
“So we did this program, and we have more than 100 volunteers who are taking care of these signs and all the things that they need to do.
They are volunteers, but they are very dedicated.”
The Red Cross volunteers are taking time out of their busy schedules to help residents fix the signs, which are usually covered by insurance.
They can also help with repairs on the street and on the sidewalks.
“These are the types of things that are needed,” said G.
“They’re needed to get people out of the house and into the street.”
The organization’s website has a list of tasks that can be done to help pay for the repairs.
They include:Signs: $100-$200Signs, poles and other temporary equipment: $40-$100Signs and other fixed items: $50-$150Piles and piles: $200-$500Piles, piles and other permanent structures: $1,500-$3,000Signs with signs or other fixed equipment: FreeSigns on the road: $300-$800Signs at intersections: $400-$600Signs to curb: $2,500Signs in parking garages: $5,000Installing and replacing road signs: $10,000Installation of street signs: FreePiles of wood: $3,600Piles in parking lots: $6,000Piles on sidewalks: $12,000
