Maine rangers return from Sandy recovery detail

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA — Maine forest rangers are back from New York where they helped in the Hurricane Sandy recovery effort for two weeks.

The nine-member Forest Ranger Incident Management Team was mobilized just two days after the devastating storm hit the city. The rangers worked with the New York Health Department and New York National Guard in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn.

The Maine team managed three medical-assistance teams that conducted more than 21,000 door-to-door health and wellness checks in nearly 200 high-rise buildings affected by the storm.

On Sunday, 11 state police troopers arrived back in Maine after spending a week helping to keep the peace in Monmouth County in New Jersey in the storm's aftermath.
