For all the claims that Zuccotti Park had to be cleared early Tuesday morning due to “intolerable” health and safety conditions, Zuccotti Park did include a First Aid tent, staffed with nurses, offering free flu shots to willing participants this past Sunday.

Just over a day later, we received an e-mail from Carl Ginsburg, spokesman for National Nurses United:

First Aid tent shredded. Supplies…destroyed.

Wednesday, Ginsburg wrote again, this time with better news:

We are back today after a harrowing and long day yesterday, providing first aid on a mobile basis best we can. We will continue to provide relief and care for as long as OWS maintains its presence. We support the 99%!

Today they’re on the street and in Zuccotti Park, with a nurse on duty.
