THIS IS GOING TO BE A ROUGH ROAD AHEAD, BUT ONE THAT WE ARE WILLING TO TAKE!!! CTTF!!! HOORAH

I thank all of you that have been helping NYC through this horrific event. I would also like to set up some ground rules in regards to working in any NYPD capacity. This means off duty and on duty. While you are assigned to the CTTF Auxiliary Unit, on and off, you are my responsibility, like it or not. If you decide to work along with another unit, you must get my permission first. If you want to leave the borough of Manhattan South, you must ask permission. I have to know. The desk has to know. A detail roster must be filled out before going into any area that has been hit hard. This goes for regulars as well. All about accountability. You may think that the rules do not make sense or you might completely disagree with them but, the rules are in place so that every single one of you are accounted for and every single one of you go home safely. I don't care what your background is. These are the rules that I must follow and they are the rules that you will follow, no questions asked. This Unit does not become a free for all when your coordinators aren't around. You do not make decisions on your own to go to a hot zone. That will never happen again. I am so proud of you because you all wanted to get down and dirty but at the same time, I had to listen to my Sgt and LT screaming today because procedure wasn't followed. Never again. Great work today and I'm sure that you made a huge difference out there. I'm glad that nobody got hurt today or yesterday. To make it absolutely clear, NO Member of this unit shall act in any capacity with the NYPD and involve themselves with the rescue, recovery, or relief efforts to Hurricane Sandy without permission of me, PO Green. That includes community affairs. They do not have the authority to override your chain of command. Again, I know that all of you mean well, just follow the procedure. We all have a job to do. Every job is important. Every job will help the relief efforts. That's guaranteed. If there is nothing to do, go to the armory on 26 and Lexington and make sure that the supply trucks get in safely and stop traffic as they unload the food, water, clothing and other supplies needed in the hard hit areas. Let's do this CTTF. Keep it up

A/Sgt. France: your words were very touching and on point. Thank you. My Long Beach hometown, in many areas, has people in need of shelter, food, water and everything the folks in Staten Island and the Rockaways need. One friend was the FDNY Captain in charge of NY Harbor after 9/11. He nearly got killed in the Twin Towers. Now he, his wife and daughters have no home and no cars. But he told me he and his family are thankful to be alive. We all have a lot to be thankful for.

Yesterday I worked with NYPD Community Affairs in Staten Island while working there I got a reality check that this can heppin to anyone if all you have is NO lights and No heat thank GOD you still have a home to go to the homes there most of them on the water front are gone some lady and I were talking she said "I have alot of respect for homeless people" so right away I looked at her and her S550 I said in my head "damn right" but anyway while I was driving the van people were coming up to us asking for food, water some people had small babys, kids ages 5-12 some had no shoes people were crying asking for help it was sad and we did help alot of people becuse we has the resources it brought tears of joy to my eye knowing even tho I worked with Community Affairs they said thank you NYPD under one brotherhood I already talk to P.O Green we can soon go to the outter parts of manhattan and help like I did at the end of the day you feel good about what you did. Please remember not just Staten Island got hit hard Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Long Island, NJ, CT try to come in and help
11-04-2012 12:11:39 PM EST
I look forward to returning to New York and working tours to help New York recover and rebuild. While my Long Beach home is intact, the island is still without power, water and sewage. Our streets are a mess and countless homes were destroyed. I'll be back as soon as Long Beach has water and I can get gas for my car (now in Washington, D.C.). Good luck to all of you who are in NYC and able to make it to CTTF!

I'm sitting at a dead traffic light watching as the New York State and Nassau County Fire Marshals escort dozens of buses and equipment from Tennessee and it just hit me, this really happened to us. Us meaning NY. This is really going on. This is not a drill. This is for real. The shoe is on the other foot and we are the ones looking for the help. Wow. It's overwhelming to see the amount of damage. It's hard to see our own in pain. Everything is gone. I preach Motivation, Motivation, Motivation. Well, today is no different. In fact, we need Motivation more today than ever. It fuels our fire and we need to dig deeper than we knew we could to get through this tragedy. It has hit our area on so many levels. Let's stand tall CTTF. Let's lead the way to recovery. I don't care if we are assisting the flow of traffic because those rescue workers that are responding from all over will see you when they come over the bridges. You will be their first sight of the NYPD. They need to know that we are strong, so stand tall and proud. The people of New York that are victims will see you out there working hard. Yes, even directing traffic makes a difference. Everything makes a difference right now and all of you are capable of it. This the real deal and I am totally confident that the CTTF Auxiliary Unit will get the job done. Let's keep it up. God Bless every single one of you. You do this from the heart and it shows!!! True Heroes!!! Thank you for what you do and for teaching me a few things about heart!!!

There is still much to be done and many of our members have yet to show up and assist with the relief/recovery efforts. Today Tour begins at 1100 hrs also we turn the clock back an hour which means many got an extra hour of sleep. For those of you who have not come in yet at all, I hope you can come in today. Now if transportation/family issues or anything like held you back, I completely understand and hope for the best for you. Many of our members sacrificed to help others all week long. As this is why and how CTTF continues to set the standard!

A/SGT Siewart, I'll be in tomorrow. As everyone can see things are pretty bad around here. There are still a lot of people without power, heat, access to food and water, and huge lines for gas. This is what we all got into this for, to help out the city we love when it needs our help the most.

SUNDAY 1100 HOURS: We are going to be out keeping up with the recovery efforts where ever they are needed, be there!
11-03-2012 11:09:33 AM EST
As you can see, I erased some posts. Listen up, there is a crisis going on. Keep your petty opinions to yourself!!! Keep your sights on the severe task at hand. You want to argue with each other? Do it somewhere else. The Marathon was a dumb idea and that's why they canceled it. The NYRR were completely out of line for asking that hotels kick people out so that the runners could stay. It's a fact, they did do that. As far as the million dollars goes, excellent offer. They don't have to offer any money but it doesn't cancel out them trying to have displaced people kicked out of a hotel. The damage is massive. 9/11? I don't want to hear any comments from those that weren't there. It was a horrible scene. Lots of heartache and heartbreak. You can't compare the 2. What I can tell you is that this scene is massive. It is widespread and it is effecting more people. Lives have been ripped apart. This is a horrible incident that will go down in history as one of our darkest moments. What all of you need to do is, shut your mouths and assist us or just shut your mouths all together. Get your hands and boots dirty and then you might be able to talk. Your opinions do not matter. The job needs to get done. Stop typing and start working. If you are not involved on this rescue, recovery, or relief effort, do not bother us with your opinions at all. Less talk, more action. FYI, I posted the statements on Foxsports.com. I can! I am directly involved in this. I have personal loss and I am working my ass off. Do not even start to give me any sort of opinions! The statements made were given a lot of thought and after speaking to cops and other rescue workers, I made my statements. Don't agree, then too damn bad. Get dirty and talk to me. That's all I have to say! CTTF, keep up the great work that those of you that are actually are showing up and doing. It's been a fantastic showing and overall an amazing job. You are making a world of difference for many. Thank you all.

Once again this unit showed up and showed out! We had a extremely busy and productive night! 2 mobile response vans assisting with the post storm chaos. I want to single out APO Cyrus D-something for holding down the west bound lanes on 14th street when regulars and traffic agents weren't available. Also A/SGT Hollywood France who basically held down 23 & Lex and coordinating the massive amounts of shuttle buses at that location. We were requested several times throughout the evening and responded each time and completed the job. Some regular bosses from our command were very impressed and happy with our performance! So to all the Rough Riders I want to say thank you. We are the standard!!!!
There will still be patrol on Sunday even though there is no Marathon detail. I expect all who said they were available to still show up!!!!

The CTTF Auxiliary Unit shined once again tonight. This unit was utilized and over-utilized tonight. Our members kept quiet, didn't complain, and got the job done!!! I kept hearing the brass praise the job that was being done. JUST AMAZING. GREAT JOB. MAKING US PROUD!!! MOTIVATED, DEDICATED, PROUD. THE STANDARD. WE ARE THE CTTF AUXILIARY UNIT.

This is a tough week and everyone has been working hard, no doubt about it. It was good to see the turnout that we had immediately after the storm. I have some personal business that I must attend to however keep up the drive in the meantime!!! This whole week has been an amazing show of how extraordinary you all are. I am very proud (and those of you who know me well know I’m not easily impressed). We all know firsthand the aftermath of Sandy is much worse than the media cares to portray it so remain safe out there, stay vigilant. When this is all over we’ll plan another team building night and try to find someone to sponsor it. You all deserve it; a night out on someone else’s generous dime being that you all generously donate your time and risk your lives for the greater good of the people of New York City, the best city in the world and our home.
