After a helicopter drop off in the Coamo Rio Abajo Sector of Puerto Rico, seated in the foreground, Luis O. Rivera-González, PhD, MS and the Incident Response Command Team-3 (IRCT3), had hitched a ride with a local resident, and made their way to were emergency provisions were to be distributed. The help of all community members was essential, for without this driver and his Jeep, the team would not have been able to regroup with the one Blackhawk, and two Chinook helicopters at the provision delivery site, which were waiting for their arrival. This image captured around October 13, 2017, depicted one of the many Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response (CASPER) missions, which took place in isolated Puerto Rican communities, a few weeks after Hurricane Maria’s impact upon the Caribbean nation.
