Port-Au-Prince, Haiti (March 26, 2010) -- This ambulance is operated in Port-Au-Prince by the Swedish Rescue Services Agency (SRSA), where I trained in the early 1990's. The volunteer group operates several of these medic units from clinics in PAP. Although the SRSA was initially designed to respond to disasters within Sweden, the group has served during many disasters worldwide -- including Hurricane Katrina here in the USA. (They arrived before FEMA)
