Prompt Ambulance Heads to NYC For Sandy

Prompt Ambulance Service was contacted Saturday afternoon by FEMA to send seven ambulances to Fort Dix in New Jersey, in anticipation of the approaching storm on the east coast. At 1:00 am yesterday, 15 crew members in 7 ambulances and 1 chase vehicle departed from our Merrillville location and drove through the night to Fort Dix, New Jersey. Once they arrived at Fort Dix, FEMA directed them to New York City to help the local NYC Fire Department.

The crew is stationed at various locations around NYC, awaiting the storm to hit land. Our dispatch center in Highland is tracking their location, as well as the storm.
