Command Center Deploys Over 700 Workers Daily To Assist With Cleanup Efforts Following Hurricane Sandy

Command Center, Inc. (OTCQB: CCNI) ( http://www.otcmarkets.com/stock/CCNI/quote), a national provider of on-demand and temporary staffing solutions, today said its Disaster Recovery Services division is now providing over 700 workers daily to assist with massive cleanup efforts in multiple areas affected by Hurricane Sandy. The company has responded “quickly and efficiently” to requests for its assistance from about 15 disaster relief contractors, primarily in the states of New Jersey and New York.

Command Center is recruiting and qualifying workers through two recently established field offices in the cities of Newark and Paterson, New Jersey. The company has already processed applications for more than 3,000 men and women wanting to participate in recovery efforts, many of whom have already been sent out on work assignments. With the very difficult working conditions resulting from the hurricane, initial recruiting sites used by the company have included a gazebo in a park and folding tables set up on a sidewalk.

The company said it expects the need for workers it deploys to continue for an extended period of time.

“Our response to this crisis is an excellent demonstration of logistics at the highest level in temp staffing,” said Glenn Welstad, Command’s Chairman and CEO. “When an emergency hits or disaster strikes, there are so many moving pieces that have to come together right away to meet the challenge. As part of the design of our ongoing business model at Command Center, we have experienced people and sophisticated systems that are capable of organizing and mobilizing large numbers of our Field Team Members (FTMs) for multiple site locations, often within a day or two, if necessary.

“We are pleased to be among the first responders to help so many communities in need. In doing so, we are able to provide employment to people who need work to support themselves and their families during this difficult time. And we are grateful for the support and cooperation we have received from the City of Newark and other local authorities. Command Center is committed to staying as long as necessary to help these distressed communities recover and rebuild.”
