Disaster Response Team

Delivering Expertise When Our Nation Needs Us

When our nation calls upon us, we bring the healthcare expertise, equipment and speed needed to respond to emergency situations. AMR is the prime contractor with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide ground ambulance, air ambulance, paratransit services and non-ambulance EMS personnel to supplement the federal and military response to a disaster, act of terrorism or any other public health emergency. This contract covers 48 states.

Osage Ambulance District is a sub-contracted provider for AMR and has EMT’s and Paramedics trained in disaster response to deploy when needed. Any deployment will not affect day-to-day operations or resource availability to our District. All expenses incurred as a result of a Disaster Team deployment are reimbursed by FEMA.

We work in conjunction with the state and local governments in those areas to assist in patient care, evacuation-related functions and any necessary Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
