Nate Lasseur (left), a lieutenant with the West Palm Beach, Fla. Fire Department, speaks with Port-au-Prince Fire Chief Donald Grégory William at the Port-au-Prince fire station. Lasseur, an American of Haitian descent, is working to help better equip firefighters in underdeveloped countries through his International Firefighters Assistance organization. The building was heavily damaged in the January 12 earthquake and has been deemed uninhabitable and marked for demolition, though no one can say when that may be. William says he spends as little time as necessary inside the structure. A few dozen under-equipped firefighters are tasked with providing fire service to a damaged city of over two million people.
