Thanks to the efforts of EMI's Jason and Chance, the Emergency Field Hospital is up and running now and seeing about 140 patients per day. Jason is currently working on having water treated for both the hospital and for the local community. He also set up a second treatment system in another region of Grand Bahama for a medical clinic and community. Coordination with Port Authority to bring in a large reverse osmosis unit is currently underway. This will allow water to be filtered and trucked to more rural areas of Grand Bahama.
