The guardsmen said they were working with the New York City Office of Emergency Management going door-to-door to determine if residents needed portable heaters or other items to in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Using portable personal tablets, they said they could provide residents with a heater within 30 minutes. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
