EMS Task Forces

Task Forces are the resources sent to localities to help them meet their EMS needs during a disaster.  A task force includes:

  • Two ALS equipped ambulances
  • Crash/Rescue Truck
  • 2-15 EMS providers led by a trained Task Force Commander

Task Forces are organized on a regional or agency basis from volunteer, governmental, and/or commercial agencies.

Training programs, standard operating procedures, and organizational checklists are available to help you establish a Task Force.
