LA County Firefighters Leave for Haiti

The team left this morning for the earthquake massacred nation of Haiti. The LAT’s Robert J. Lopez reports:

The 72-member team includes paramedics, emergency room physicians, structural engineers, search dogs and firefighters trained in combing through collapsed structures with sophisticated detection devices to find victims trapped in rubble.

Once in Haiti, the task force will coordinate with disaster officials who are surveying the widespread damage. The goal will be to focus on collapsed structures where victims had the best chance of surviving, Levesque said.

We think that masthead on their website is perpetuating a very appealing, very hot stereotype. Make us proud, guys.
