Major John Smith with Gold Cross EMS says, “We’re taking them back in ambulances because some of them are in rehab, they have a broken limb where they’re not able to bear weight, or they’re bed-bound. They came down here because they couldn’t stay obviously where the hurricane was coming, so, we’re taking them back in ambulances because that’s the only way they can travel back.
