Firefighters of Port-au-Prince (1/28)

Next >
Eight months after the January 12 earthquake, thousands of people are still living in tents and shacks set up in the Champs De Mars area of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, close to the city's fire station.  A few dozen under-equipped firefighters are tasked with providing fire service to a damaged city of over two million people. Their station has been deemed uninhabitable and marked for demolition, though no one can say when that may be. There are no plans yet for relocation.
