Noticed an interesting vehicle parked among WakeMed's transport units yesterday, a long "beer truck"-type of vehicle labeled Special Operations Support Team or similar. Behind it was a long, two-axle trailer labeled State Emergency Medical Team, I think. What are these units? Mass casualty units? Field triage units? Some of both? And how many other area hospitals have such equipment?

That long “beer truck” is the Special Ops Support Unit.. It carries a array of different equipment such as decon tents/showers, heaters, back boards, coveralls, etc.. It was last used when the refugess from New Orleans came and stayed at the Nortel Building. That tandem trailer actually belongs to OEMS and is part of the State Medical Assistance Team. There are several of those trailers across the state that hold various medical supplies and equipment. That trailer was last used in Waveland MS.

Here’s a picture of said “beer struck,” along with the triple-axle (not tandem-axle, as I incorrectly reported) trailer: http://www.legeros.com/temp/wakemed.jpg
