Baltimore Sending ‘Ambulance Strike Force’ to New Jersey
The medics will help move patients and respond to 911 calls.
Baltimore will be sending two Advance Life Support medics a supervisor to New Jersey on Thursday to aid in storm recovery.
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced the medics were being sent to aid with mass patient movements and 911 response calls in a news release.
"Yesterday, I joined a conference call with President Obama, Governor O’Malley, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and many other officials to discuss storm recovery efforts on the East Coast. Following a damage assessment here in Baltimore, I pledged to work with Governor O’Malley and other Maryland jurisdictions to help the communities most devastated by Hurricane Sandy," Mayor Rawlings-Blake said in the release.
The units will leave at 4 a.m. Thursday from the Public Safety Training Academy, 3500 W. Northern Parkway.
