The category 5 Hurricane Dorian made landfall over the northwest Bahamas on September 1st. The hurricane is the strongest in the history of the Bahamas. The storm has damaged infrastructure and caused massive flooding in the areas of Abaco and Grand Bahama. Damage assessments are still ongoing, however 5 people have been killed and over 68,000 people in the Bahamas have been affected by the storm. With damage extensive, people in the Bahamas are in immediate need of clean water, food, and shelter items. GlobalMedic is responding.

Yesterday, GlobalMedic is deploying its Rapid Response Team with water purification units and RescUAV Team with drones to the Bahamas to provide on the ground assistance. Media is invited to meet the team at GlobalMedic HQ at 5am before they depart.

The team will be led by a Staff Sergeant of the Peel Regional Police. Also included in the team is rookie firefighter from Toronto Pearson Airport and former Toronto Maple Leaf and New York Ranger, Andre Deveaux. Andre was born and raised in the Bahamas and has been unable to contact any of his friends and family in Freeport.
