Oxnard fire chief assists first responders at collapsed Florida condo

Health


Oxnard Fire Chief Alex Hamilton led a national team of firefighters this week to help their fellow first responders at the site of a condominium collapse in Surfside, Florida.

As of midday Friday, 78 people had been found dead and another 62 remained unaccounted for since much of the 12-story Champlain Towers South collapsed on June 24.

Hamilton’s team was brought together by the International Association of Fire Fighters to provide “peer support services,” which can range from mental health services to on-site requests.

“It’s brutal, brutal work,” Hamilton said of the 24-hour-a-day effort required of firefighters at the disaster site.
