West Jefferson Medical Center (WJMC) has set up a first aid tent in Grand Isle. Oil spill workers suffering from medical conditions relating to the cleanup effort can use the tent if they can find it.
BP, WJMC and Jefferson Parish have not posted the location of the tent other than to state that it is located at the Jefferson Parish Emergency Management compound on Grand Isle. You can use your cell phone to call “911” or may want to try to look for the tent at the Tarpon Rodeo Pavilion, 4500 Highway 1, Grand Isle, La 70358.
Officials said the tent will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. It will be staffed by two EMS professionals, a doctor and a nurse practitioner. WJMC is also providing ambulance service to the area.
