U.S. Sends Earthquake Search And Rescue Teams To Mexico

At the request of the Mexican government, a U.S. Urban Search and Rescue team arrived in Mexico to support search and rescue efforts after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck the country. 

USAID has deployed USAR internationally approximately 16 times since 1988, most recently for the 2015 Nepal earthquake and the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami.

Below are links to relevant imagery from the U.S. Air Force’s transport of United States personnel and supplies to assist Mexico in earthquake response efforts.
