Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 positive cases and deaths, I contacted Governor Abbott last Friday, May 8th, for assistance with more testing capacity and hot-spot epidemiology analysis.

Following agreements:
-A Surge Response Team to El Paso to assist with more testing.
-The mobile testing teams arrived the next day (Saturday, May 9th) and began working with the Office of Emergency Management to open four testing sites- which became operational on Monday, May 10th.
-The State Chain Strike Force will make sure we have the hospital rooms and ventilators we need, should we experience a significant increase in positive cases.
-A State Epidemiology Team will assist Dr. Ocaranza with hot spot analysis in order to address outbreaks.

I’m grateful for his support to El Paso.

This year 196 people from all across Texas and Southern New Mexico were ready to join Texas EMTF in support of Bataan Memorial Death March 2020. Thank you to all who registered through Eventbrite to support this great event. This year's march was understandably canceled, out of an abundance of caution. We look forward to once again supporting WSMR, our Veterans and Wounded Warriors in the future. A special thanks to: EMTF 1, 2, 4, 7 and 9, American Red Cross, Elite Medical Transport, Texas Rescue Patrol, Marathon, West Texas MRC, Proaction, Revive, Life EMS Academy, Texas Tech, BorderRAC, Panhandle Rac, BRAC, Texas J RAC, Concho Valley Rac, Heart of Texas RAC, NCTTRAC, and so many others were registered and ready to go. My sincerest thanks and I hope to see you at the next Bataan.

I am excited Bataan Memorial Death March is less than a month away! We are still recruiting Physicians, RNs, EMTs and logistical folks. This is a great opportunity to give back to our honorable veterans who have served and continue to serve. Last year we had snow on our tents for the first time!
This year will bring new challenges, Sunday March 15th 8 am to 9 pm.

We could still use extra hands for setup, Friday March 13th 9 am to 4 pm and/or tear down, Monday March 16th 9 am to 3 pm.

Contact EMTF 9 Coordinator Martin Dominguez, [email protected] call or text 915-355-8735 for any questions.

Sincere thanks to those who already signed up and continue to support this amazing event each year! Texas EMTF relies on help from our regional partners. I hope to see there!

Texas EMTF 1

Here is information that Rodney sent out in an email.

Hello all,
As many of you know EMTF1 is currently deployed to Hurricane Harvey. The rainfall is expected to be in the 30 - 40 inches.
We currently have our AMBUS and crew, 3 Medical Incident Support Team Members., and now we currently have 14 people with the Mobile Medical Unit in the staging area at San Antonio. We are combining with EMTF9 to make a larger Type 2 MMU.

I wanted to update everyone . I also wanted to Thank everyone that answered the call to go. I also wanted each of you and your people to know how much I appreciated the overwhelming response so far. We were able to fill the requests of our region within minutes of my call out.
We will be in the feild for a minimum of 5 days and we may need more people down range as we begin to relieve those that have been working for several days now. I will contact more people as needed. The storm has been very bad and will continue for many days with heavy rain. The flooding will displace many more people in the next few days.
We will represent Region 1 and Texas very well!

Over all Texas EMTF has:

15 ambulance strike teams
13 AMBUS's
1 Type II Ambulance Staging Sites
3 Type III Ambulance Staging Sites
40 MIST members
4 Paramedic Coach Buses
1 Type III Mobile Medical Unit
1 Type II Mobile Medical Unit
1 Type I Mobile Medical Unit
1 Task Force Leader
2 Forward Operating Group Supervisors




Thank you all very much! Rodney
