Major Earthquake Strikes Ill Prepared Port-au-Prince Haiti

port-au-prince-sign-haitiHard to believe but the 2 million residents of Port-au-Prince Haiti are served by a single fire station. The video below, highlighting the efforts of Lt Nate Lasseur of the West Palm Beach Florida Fire Department profiles the needs of fire professionals in this impoverished country.

There is nothing on the Internet pointing to any information on fire or rescue services in Haiti. By contrast the city of San Jose California, with a population of nearly 1 million offers individual websites with images for each of their 35 fire stations.

Something is wrong with this disparity.

    Its mission evolved with changing military doctrine and foreign policy of the United States. Owing to the availability of Marine forces at sea, the United States Marine Corps has served in nearly every conflict in United States history.
