Emergency Evacuations

The Vital Role of Medical Personnel During Disasters

From wildfires and chemical spills to hurricanes and earthquakes, disasters both natural and manmade are harsh realities. They often happen without warning, hit hard and impact large populations. Fortunately, advanced planning and preparation along-with communication and teamwork helps communities survive through the worst. As record-breaking 14 foot ocean swells swept through the streets of New York City, down into subways and houses; officials across the East Coast enacted pre-established emergency plans and evacuation procedures.

Hospitals, assisted living facilities, group homes, shelters and rehabilitation clinics all had critical care patients and residents who required assisted transport. The safe transportation for many of these people meant ambulances and experienced critical care medical personnel on-hand throughout the transportation process. Local, state and private medical transportation services combined forces to evacuate thousands of at-risk people from healthcare facilities throughout the East Coast.

During times of emergency, lives and personal welfare depend on the training, expertise and fortitude of emergency medical personnel. These paramedics, EMTs, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses and first responders put themselves in harm’s way to help others get out.

Throughout the duration of the East Coast storm, Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance Services will have technologically advanced and medically configured Learjet air ambulances standing by, ready to provide long distance critical care, air medical patient transports and evacuation services.
