COVINGTON, Ga. - Caleb Frazier, a local plumber, has loaded up his truck and boat and started his journey to Tampa, Florida to offer his services however he can to those who have been impacted by Hurricane Irma.

Fazier, who was on Interstate 75 South when he spoke with The Covington News, said so far he has seen a lot of billboards down and debris in the roadway.

Frazier has a plumbing business, Frazier Plumbing Service, and he also does boat and dock maintenance. He said he loaded up his four-wheel drive truck with his boat, generator, air compressor and tools and headed south to help in any way he can.

“I started thinking about it,” he said.”I’ve got this boat, four-wheel drive truck and all this equipment, if that sort of thing was happening to me, I’d hope that somebody would come down to help me.”

Frazier said he has received support from several friends to help cover the cost of fuel.

“I want to stretch every single dollar so that the victims are helped best and your donation gets the best bang for the buck,” he said adding that he will be sleeping in his truck during his stay and the money will go only to relief efforts.
