VA-TF1/USA-1 Continues Operations in Nepal

The team conducted additional structural assessments in Kathmandu today while awaiting completion of travel plans to return home. We will post additional information as it becomes available to include the departure and arrival plans.

Below is a post concerning the combined DARTeam from USAID, USA-1 and USA-2.

Please continue to keep all in your thoughts and prayers.

We are SO PROUD of the great work done by our urban search-and-rescue teammates in Nepal! Not only did they help in the rescue of a 15-year-old boy, members of our disaster team from Los Angeles County Fire Department and Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department also conducted structural assessments of 125 buildings & bridges to check for earthquake damage.
