Osage Ambulance District’s Disaster Response Team has been deployed to support the Hurricane Michael response.

The team went to Pensacola, Florida, to await further orders, district officials announced via social media. Crews were dispatched at 3 a.m. Thursday.

The Osage Ambulance District is a sub-contractor of American Medical Response, which holds the FEMA contract to provide ground and air ambulances to federal disasters.

The ambulance district teamed up with Ozark Central Ambulance District and Dixon Ambulance District to provide five ambulances, five paramedics and five EMTs to make up a “strike team.”

The crews will be deployed for an undetermined length of time, and there will be no loss of coverage locally, ambulance district officials said. All expenses related to the deployment will be reimbursed by FEMA.
