Houston-Area EMS Helps Evacuate Patients from Flood

Issue 6 and Volume 41.

Evacuations by emergency responders are often lifesaving. Here, crews from Cypress Creek Fire Department and Harris County Constables Precinct 4 help Betty Jones evacuate from her flooded apartment complex during the heavy rain in Houston in April. Storms dumped more than a foot of rain in the Houston area, flooded dozens of neighborhoods, shut down highways and left at least five people dead.
