Facebook Twitter Email

Various officials and workers from the Indian Health Service have been aiding rescue and recovery efforts at the World Trade Center in New York City.

Jaloo Zelonis, deputy nurse consultant for IHS in Billings, Montana, spent more than a week helping out. She said it is hard to understand the magnitude of September 11's terrorist attack without seeing the destruction first hand.

Bob Valandra, the director of nursing for the IHS hospital at Crow Agency, helped other Public Health Service workers staff first-aid stations for rescue workers. Other IHS workers are also aiding the effort.
