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 stormâs 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.
âTo be a part of the community of the state of Texas and
help our fellow man in their time of need, itâs something we jumped in with
both feet and we keep going whenever weâre called on to help,â Langford said.
âTo be able to help the state and continue to show everyone that weâre here in
a time of need, itâs an awesome responsibility and an honor.â
