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.
