04/26/11 74 W, 1 I - + 8 - 2 More Fleet Photos of Task Force 8

Continuing the posting of a prior week, another set of fleet photos of NC USAR Task Force 8 has been posted by photographer (and FireNews Editor-in-Chief) Jeff Harkey. They include this shot that's been heavily processed for cleaner background and foreground details. Harley's photos also include posed shots of each unit and on both sides. How cool is that? See the entire set of photos.

Very impressive fleet! And to think this is only 1 of 11 task forces in North Carolina. Says a lot about North Carolinas preparedness.

Would be awesome if all the of the equipment could be in one place to get a state photo. Same goes for all of the state SMAT equipment. I know Wake Med has an elaborate fleet.

In addition to SMAT but similar in mission objective is Carolinas Medical Center’s MED-1. It deploys as a self sustainable 150+ bed trauma center. It has recently aligned with NC SMAT. I have had to opportunity to work with their staff and help show it’s capabilities to the public. A very impressive commodity and another something NC should be proud to own.

Sounds the makings of a fine expanding blog thread! Now if can list the other regional teams as such. Haz-Mat RRT. Others?

and don’t forget the 7 HazMat Regional Response Teams… they have been in operation for at least 15 years or more, right?
