NYACK, N.Y. -- Jason Paluck, a Nyack resident, recently returned from Florida after helping the victims of Hurricane Irma.

Paluck, a member of the National Disaster Medical Assistance Team was assisting the federal medical response to Irma. The team helped provide care to more than 2,200 people affected by the storm.

“Hurricane Irma has put people’s health and lives in jeopardy, and NDMS members are answering the call of duty to help residents affected by this disaster,” said NDMS’ Acting Director Ron Miller.
