The Fairfax County search and rescue teams in Port-au-Prince, Haiti are beginning to wrap up their operations.

It's been a few days since the Fairfax County search and rescue team has pulled out anyone alive from beneath the rubble, but they still do go out and search when asked.

For the most part, they've been helping out whenever they can: cleaning up the embassy, or pulling out supplies from the rubble of a children's hospital to use.

The team has saved a total of 16 people and expects to return back to Fairfax County by the end of the week.
