The federal government is asking the district to take an inventory and figure what resources can be sent to Haiti to help with the relief effort. Mayor Adrian Fenty says the city is prepared to send about about a hundred firefighters, five engine trucks, public health officials, and a police search and rescue team.
"The federal government wants to make sure that as resources are sent there they are done in a coordinated fashion, so we would not just send anyone to Haiti without the coordination of the State Department," says Fenty.
Fenty is also urging D.C. residents to donate money and says the city will provide grief counseling to anyone in need.
