After the April 2011 flooding, Bridge Foundation supplied more than 100,000 bottles of water to first responders including officials at the Tuscaloosa City Hall, Police and Fire Rescue Services as well as more than 500 victims in temporary shelters. Bridge Foundation supplied two 200kw high capacity generators to Alabama's Gulf Coast region in response to Hurricane Ivan 2004.

Bridge Foundation staff were on the ground in Mobile as Ivan made landfall. One generator was used within hours of Ivan's landfall to provide power to the City of Mobile's Police Headquarters. The generator ensured that power was restored to this critical facility as rapidly as possible. The Mobile County Water, Sewer, Fire & Protection Authority used the second generator to power the municipal water supply for the town of Alabama Port in the heavily damaged area along the Gulf Coast south of Mobile. Potable drinking water was restored to some 12,000 people.
