Tennesseans to assist Dorian victims
The State of Tennessee sent critical emergency management and medical assistance to the Carolinas on Thursday and more are leaving today in preparation for Hurricane Dorianís coastal impact. A 30-member nurse strike team from the Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) is in Raleigh, North Carolina, to provide medical care to Hurricane Dorian survivors. The team includes 25 nurses and five emergency response coordinators (ERC) from TDH locations across the state. ERCs will provide logistical and communication support to allow the nurses to focus on nursing. A five-person incident management team (IMT) will deploy today to South Carolina to assist local and state logistics and response efforts. These teams join the 129 ambulance, swift-water rescue, and emergency management personnel who deployed into the southeast last weekend and earlier this week to support emergency response efforts for Hurricane Dorian. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency (TEMA) is coordinating the deployments through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), the nationís state-to-state mutual aid system. Hurricane Dorian is off Floridaís Atlantic coast, moving north after having spent 48 hours over the Bahamas as a Category 5 hurricane, killing 21 people and destroying thousands of homes and businesses.
