EASTON-A special team of emergency medical services personnel departed in the darkest hours of the morning Thursday for New Jersey and some of the most distressed areas hit by Hurricane Sandy.

The Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems responded readily to a request from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for an Ambulance Strike Team to assist in recovery efforts. The Strike Team, consisting of two sets of five ambulances, two supervisors and a Task Force coordinator, was put in place through a shared network of national, state and local jurisdictions' resources. Complicated though that may sound, their job is simple: Provide emergency medical services and the supportive service, backup and supply distribution where and when they are needed.
