Fort Bend County Emergency Medical Services MPV6-03 remains deployed in SE Texas
MPV6-03 remains deployed in support of the Texas Emergency Medical Task Force mission in southeast Texas following Hurricane Laura. The crews and AMBUS have performed flawlessly throughout the mission and they are very proud to serve their fellow Texans.
Over the past week as Hurricane Laura's track threatened to impact southeast Texas, many agencies from EMTF-6, along with multiple EMS agencies from across the State, converged on Ford Park in Beaumont to establish an ambulance staging location to provide evacuations and augment 9-1-1 needs for local jurisdictions.
When these situations occur, they usually ramp up very quickly and it requires an in-depth understanding of the process. The region was supported by excellent leadership from Sugar Land Fire - EMS, Northwest EMS, Montgomery County Hospital District, Fort Bend County EMS and Lake Jackson EMS, along with such great talent from outside our region.
One of the key components in this process was to ensure all the crew members participating under the objectives, remain flexible and adaptable to the dynamics of the mission. The Texas Emergency Medical Task Force Region 6 could not have asked for better team players. The mission will continue as they are working diligently to repopulate the area and additional support is coming in from other regional partners at Lumberton Fire & EMS Hardin County ESD #2, Cy-Fair Fire Department, Harris County Emergency Services District 5/Crosby EMS, El Campo EMS, Atascocita Fire Department, and Alvin EMS.
Texas Emergency Medical Task Force Region 6 expresses their gratitude to the team members who give selflessly of their time to ensure these missions are successful. They also thank the leadership and administration of each entity that supports the deployment under the Emergency Medical Task Force program.
