Many businesses and organizations in New York are suffering without electricity following yesterday’s devastating hit from Hurricane Sandy. With electrical and tech equipment down across the city, there’s a need for capable engineers to help get New Yorkers back to being plugged in. Today, the New York Tech Meetup and New Work City published a sign-up form for volunteers hoping to use their tech skills to help out a neighbor.

“NY Tech Meetup and New Work City are organizing volunteers with technology skills to help New York-area businesses, payday loan lenders¬†and organizations get their technology back up and running after Hurricane Sandy,” reads the signup form. The team is currently organizing a database of willing volunteers and then will decide from there how to allocate help.

Skills in need include server¬†maintenance, data recovery, and wifi troubleshooting, among many others. They’re also looking for volunteers to donate or lend supplies.

Interested volunteers should sign up here.
