Major Event PlanningIn this bonus episode, we talk about the Ambulance EMS Strike Team program nationally available where extra ambulances are set up in storage around the country so they can be deployed to disasters on very short notice. AMR administers the program nationally though smaller EMS organizations participate providing EMTs and Paramedics to the program.

Joining us on the call are Bruce Evans, Chief of Upper Pine River Fire Protection District near Durango, Colorado, and Scott Barthelmass, the Public Information Officer (PIO) in the Eureka Fire Protection District near St. Louis Missouri.
