Firefighters of Port-au-Prince (2/28)

< Prev Next >
Little remains of a three-story building at the Episcopal University in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, next to the city's fire station. The building collapsed during the January 12 earthquake, killing over 40 people and injuring over one hundred. Many were saved by the firefighters from next door. The fire station itself has been deemed uninhabitable and marked for demolition, though no one can say when that may be. There are no plans yet for relocation. A few dozen under-equipped firefighters are tasked with providing fire service to a damaged city of over two million people.
