Local Disaster Relief Nurse Comes Home

While residents try to pick up the pieces of Hurricane Ivan and brace for another storm, one local nurse returns home to Lubbock after assisting with health care relief in the Florida area for two weeks.

Apryl Keaty is the Chief Supervisory Nurse for the New Mexico Disaster Medical Assistance Team. Apryl has been on the relief team for more than a decade, and on this mission they set up tents in a hospital parking lot to treat patients, taking some of the load off the local hospitals.

"I have been on one flood, multiple hurricanes, one earthquake, two Olympics and a Presidential Inauguration. And the fulfillment to help people meet basic needs and try to get their life in order again is something I can't put into words. It's what makes my everyday life worth going," said Apryl.

Apryl expects to be deployed back to the Florida area in the coming weeks.
