Maine Forest Rangers Help Coordinate Sandy Relief Efforts
11/05/2012   Reported By: Ed Morin

It's been a week since superstorm Sandy blew through, devastating many places along the mid-Atlantic coast. In the days following the storm, a number of crews from Maine headed south to help with relief efforts, including utility workers, police, and an incident management team made up of forest rangers from the State of Maine. That team is currently stationed in the Rockaways, in Queens, which was one of the hardest hit communities in New York. Kent Nelson is a Forest Ranger from the Maine Forest Service, who's also working as the team's information officer. Nelson spoke with MPBN's Ed Morin.
