Public Domain Haiti Relief Images from the US Navy

Posted by Laurie Frost on January 28, 2010

The US Navy’s Eye on the Fleet  library of public domain images continues to be updated with pictures of the relief efforts in Haiti. There are few new images of search and rescue efforts in Port-au-Prince, but more of medical evacuations and evaluations have been added.

In the past few days images of relief to rural areas of Haiti have been posted, and these show the means of getting supplies to coastal areas without harbors. A lot of pictures show the sheer volume of materials that have to be moved, somehow, from place to place. Since these are photos by  US Navy photographers, of course these are primarily of US efforts. But there are a few, like the one at the end of today’s post, that shows joint US and Mexican efforts.  

All captions are copied from the US Navy site.

More from Haiti

Posted by Laurie Frost on January 20, 2010

These images are in the public domain because they were taken by US military personnel to document relief efforts in Haiti. Captions are also taken from these sites; italics indicate that they are verbatim. Several are from the Coast Guard’s website; the others are from the Navy’s. These are just a tiny sampling of growing collections at both sites. 

Isn’t this amazing? Imagine being a rescue swimmer for the Coast Guard and finding yourself delivering a baby on a flight deck. Well done, guys. 

 PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – An Air Station Clearwater, Fla., helicopter crew aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma assisted in the delivery of a male Haitian newborn on the cutter Jan. 16, 2010. A pregnant Haitian citizen went into labor on the flight deck as the helicopter was refueling aboard the cutter. The rescue swimmer from Coast Guard HH-60 helicopter CG6024 then delivered the five-pound newborn. The mother and child were taken to a hospital in Cap Haitien, Haiti for further medical treatment and were in good condition. Tahoma was transferring Haitian citizens to Cap Haitien from Port-au-Prince for medical assistance when the woman went into labor. U.S. Coast Guard photo.
