[ARCHIVED] EMS/Medical Transport

Due to storm conditions making it difficult or impossible to access both residential areas and regional medical facilities, the ability of Deer Park EMS to accept and transport patients is severely limited. Therefore, the City of Deer Park is asking that only life-threatening matters be relayed to EMS.

“Emergency responders will respond only when their own safety will not be threatened, and driving into flood waters could create a situation in which emergency personal cannot access your location,” Emergency Services Director Robert Hemminger said. “The best thing people can do at this point is to shelter in place in their homes.”
