    UT Health East Texas EMS deployed two ambulances as part of a state strike team, which also included Hopkins County and Titus Regional EMS, according to CBS 19. As of Monday, the teams were staging in San Antonio until the storm’s track became clear.

    Roy Langford, regional director for UT Health EMS, told the
    station he and his crews go in and help evacuate residents from nursing homes
    and hospitals, when needed.

    “To be a part of the community of the state of Texas and
    help our fellow man in their time of need, it’s something we jumped in with
    both feet and we keep going whenever we’re called on to help,” Langford said.
    “To be able to help the state and continue to show everyone that we’re here in
    a time of need, it’s an awesome responsibility and an honor.”
