Hawaii, Alaska paramedics and nurses to help Sandy victims

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 05:21 p.m. HST, Nov 12, 2012

Three dozen paramedics, nurses and other health care workers from Alaska and Hawaii are heading to Manhattan to help people hit by Superstorm Sandy.

Two teams from Hawaii and one team from Alaska leave Monday on a trip that could last up to two weeks.

They start their work in Manhattan on Tuesday. 

The group of clinicians, nurses, paramedics and pharmacists most recently served in American Samoa after an earthquake and tsunami hit the U.S. territory in 2009.

Healthcare Association of Hawaii Emergency Services Director Toby Clairmont says Hawaii has a great working relationship with Alaska’s team. He says Hawaii is happy to team with Alaska again to help the people of New York.

Good Job Folks. Mahlao for your Kindness, Generosity, and True Aloha Spirit in Action, not just in words. Like so many other Hawaii residents. They speak Aloha, but pratice Hate, Deceit, Jealousy, and all the teaching of their Satanic Father. Thank you medical folks from Hawaii and Alaska. You make me proud to say I am from Hawaii and lucky I live Hawaii, because of your actions, and of those like you. God Bless you and family.
