Haiti - earthquake 2010 - Dina
1/17/10 Port au Prince, Haiti  - This is the scene that greeted DMAT and security upon arrival to the mission location. The DMAT 1 team at long last secured secure transit to their mission location to set up a field hospital, but the journey took more than five hours and included hour after hour of delay while the teams stood packed tightly together in idling dump trucks. Once they arrived at their location (a soccer field and adjacent school), they were met with hundreds of displaced Hatians who had set up a camp of sorts. The DMAT commanders abandoned the plan to ask them to move and instead decided to place the DMAT camp in the much smaller schoolyard. Security was provided by the 82nd Airborne Division.
