VIDEO: It's summertime, the season of getting things done around the house. If you're looking for some help with your yard work or moving furniture, look no further than your local firefighters! You can find them on a new app called "Hidrent," designed to connect you to local firefighters who are eager to help their community and make a few extra bucks along the way. "Through Hidrent, we do odd-and-end jobs," said firefighter Tim Hoberg. Hoberg is not stranger to using a drill, power saw and ladder, and he's utilizing Hidrent to use these talents to make some extra cash when off-duty. Most firefighters work 24 hours a day, followed by 48 hours off. During those 48 hours, some seek out side jobs. Dave Heimbuch, CEO of Hidrent, came up with the idea for the app when looking for an easy way for the community to reach out to off-duty firefighters to help with work around the house.
