10/05/15 176 W, 3 I - + 8 - 6 NC Ambulance Strike Team Deploys to Bladen County

Wake County EMS posted photos on Facebook on Sunday of an ambulance strike team deployment this week, drawn from the JocoFire group on Facebook, which also provided incident details. North Carolina Ambulance Strike Team (AST) 800 was deployed on Saturday night at the request of Bladen County Emergency Management, in response to expected heavy flooding in the area. Eighteen personnel staffed seven ambulances, an ambulance bus, a fleet service truck, and a equipment trailer. They were drawn from Durham, Franklin, Harnett, Johnson, Orange, and Wake counties. Most of the units met at the Smithfield Fire Department in Johnston County. They left as a convoy at about 8:00 p.m. on Saturday. They were instructed to prepare for a deployment of four to seven days, and will be initially housed at the North Carolina National Guard Armory in Elizabethtown. Their initial dues are expected to be assisting with evacuations as needed in affected areas. Readers, what other North or South Carolina mutual aid for flooding can you report?
