Makeshift Medicine in New Orleans

Michael Rieger is a public information officer for FEMA. Rieger documents photographically the federal agency's rescue and cleanup efforts at disaster sites.

Last week, Rieger followed an disaster medical-assistance team that deployed to New Orleans, where they set up a makeshift triage unit at the city's Louis Armstrong International Airport. The photos at left document the first days at the field hospital. Click on the audio link to hear Rieger tell the story behind the images.
