Guam - When incidents occur, the first to respond is the Guam Fire Department, unfortunately these days the life saving agency is stretched to its limit with only two medics serving the entire island.
According to Captain Andy Arceo, GFD is supposed to provide aid and is supposed to be getting some help of its own. "We're grateful for the military because they're providing us with two ambulance as part of their mutual aid agreements one out of big navy and the other out of NCTAMS," he said.
GFD was hoping to have two more back online by the end of today. In terms of a grant the agency received earlier this year to repair its fleet, according to Arceo that money was spent a long time ago. The problem GFD is confronted with now is the arrival of parts.
