News Release
AMR NW to Bring Support to Communities Stressed by Fires - 09/10/20

AMR to Provide Additional Medical Assistance in Wake of Oregon’s Wildfires

(Portland, Ore.) — AMR (American Medical Response) NW is bringing four Strike Teams (made up of five ambulances staffed by ten Paramedics and EMTS) into the region to provide support for the communities in which the wildland fires are raging – including parts of both Clackamas and Marion Counties. Additional patient transports may be needed from long-term care facilities, hospitals, or other residential medical facilities for fragile community members that find themselves in the line of fire.

The crews from out-of-state are getting special dispensation from their EMS Medical Directors to provide medical care and ambulance transportation in Oregon. The first Strike Team will deploy from Spokane, Washington Thursday night.  Others will come from Centralia, Vancouver and the Portland Metro area.
