Peterbilt Motors Co. is donating a new Model 365 dump truck to disaster relief agency First Response Team of America, to help assist the nonprofit's ongoing efforts throughout the U.S.

Founded by Tad Agoglia two years ago, who also serves as the group's president, First Response Team of America sees itself as filling the gap between the onset of a disaster and the arrival of traditional relief agencies. Team members unite with first responders to provide rescue and recovery resources, including equipment, tools and personnel.

“Peterbilt's truck will help us remove debris, carry the equipment we rely on, clear roads, and even recover official records and personal photographs,” Agoglia noted.
