Durham County EMS Adds Major Incident Unit

Durham County EMS has taken delivery of a new Major Incident Response Vehicle (MIRV). The 2015 Freightliner 192/Hackey is named MIRV-1. It carries multi-patient incident equipment and supplies for 25 people, including marking cones for triage, treatment, and transportation areas.

MIRV is also well-equipped for the winter storm that passed through. The truck has a large generator and light tower, three chainsaws and associated equipment, and a four-person cab, if a small warming space is needed. See the original posting on Facebook by DCEMS.

Next question, what other local/area EMS systems operate similar units? Wake County EMS has Truck 1, a 2006 Sterling/Hackney that we’ve seen many times (see blog archives posting). Who else?
