BROOKLYN - Superstorm Sandy victims in Red Hook are remembering all the volunteers who have helped them recover over the past year.

Residents say they're still rebuilding everything that was lost, but wouldn't have made it as far as they have without the help of the Red Hook Volunteers.

The group was born after Sandy, with more than 4,000 registered volunteers, many of whom still remain active in the neighborhood.

Members are also now in the process of being trained through FEMA to become certified emergency managers so that they can go anywhere to help victims in the event of another disaster.
