Dayton-based EMS service providing aid for Harvey

A Dayton-based EMS company has a team of four employees on the ground in Texas ready to assist with any medical transport assignments handed to them from FEMA.

AMR Dayton sent the four-person team to AMR’s National Operations Center in Dallas earlier this week and the team will be assisting with Harvey relief, where needed, according to AMR Dayton Director, James Laidlaw.

The crew, which is part of the company’s disaster response team, will likely serve a 7-14 day deployment and crews will be rotated depending on the assignments from FEMA, Laidlaw said.

AMR Dayton started services in the Dayton region last November, so for the members this is their first deployment with the company, Laidlaw said.

The four-person team is comprised of employees living in the Dayton and greater Dayton area, Laidlaw said.
