Does anyone have a handle on how many of the hospital based units responded,
and who coordnates their dispatch ?
Jon C - 06/09/09 - 20:37

Our 911 lines lit up and the first call was initiated in CAD at 11:27 hours. At one point on my CAD I counted 20 Wake County EMS units either enroute, on scene, enroute to the hospital or at the hospital and that did not include the APP’s or the supervisors. I know we special called 2 CAT buses for standby and transport. M/A ambulances were brought in from Harnett and Franklin if I remember correctly. WSO handled priority police calls in Garner City limits. WSO, SHP handled traffic and locking down the scene.

Any Johnston County untis respond to scene or fill in at other staions/departments?
buckwheat - 06/10/09 - 21:53

No Johnston County units were requested. You would think with Clayton being 5 miles from there with 3 paramedic ambulances and 50-210 at Cleveland FD about 10 miles away with a Paramedic ambulance, some fill-ins could have taken place at a minimum if not used in the initial response. The mechanism is in place now to communicate via radio with out of county units. It was said on one news source that Franklin County and Harnett County EMS units were used. That is interesting.

It is possible that they did not want to deplete their closest aid (Johnston) in order to have units to run calls in Wake County other than the ConAgra scene. Most of eastern Wake County was short for quite some time, and it would make sense to call for Franklin and Harnett to transport the non life threatening patients instead of clearing out all of western Johnston. Just my two cents.
