January usually marks the start of major preparations and recruiting efforts for EMTF to support the Bataan Memorial Death March. While the MMU will not be deploying this year, I am excited to have one last opportunity to march again! EMTF-9 continues to support the Bataan Memorial Death March!

Happy New Year Marchers! Registration for the 2021 Virtual Bataan Memorial Death March opens January 21st! #morethanjustamarathon #virtualbataan2021

01/01/2021

As I find a moment to look back on a year like no other, I am nothing short of amazed at what Texas EMTF has been able to accomplish and what it has grown into in the course of only a year.

Whether it be in support of testing, patient transport, or direct patient care, nearly 1000 Texans from 140 different partners have answered the call to help fellow Texans in the fight against COVID.

The assets and MMU deployed to support the El Paso COIVD surge marked two historic achievements for EMTF: the first major deployment into the EMTF-9 region, which also set the record for the longest EMTF deployment.

And in case we thought the world would grind to a halt to allow us to handle the pandemic, 2020 produced a record-breaking hurricane season, multiple wildfires, and now a massive winter storm, that all required constant preparedness, posturing, and the occasional deployment; all while the pandemic ominously loomed over us all.

A year like no other was met by an organization like no other. The Great State of Texas remains indebted to those of you who have supported our operations this year and every year. I am incredibly humbled to be in the company of those I have met in the short four months I have spent in this position so far.

May you all enjoy a safe holiday season, and here's to a healthier and safer 2021 that moves the proverbial needle back to normal.

Bataan Memorial Death March

Update on the 2021 Bataan Memorial Death March:

Dear Marchers,

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, safety remains the top priority for our participants, volunteers, staff and our community supporters. Registration for Bataan 2021 has been temporarily postponed, however, we are continuously monitoring the situation and working closely with health officials to explore all options. Please continue to check our website and social media for future updates.
It is our intent to host the 32nd Annual Bataan Memorial Death March in the safest manner possible, in order to continue our mission to honor the sacrifices of the fallen, survivors of the Bataan Death March and defenders of the Philippines during WWII.

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!
