The Federal Emergency Management Agency is preparing to send 50 ambulances and 100 personnel to North Carolina to help with the COVID-19 response. The FEMA support information was detailed in a federal planning document obtained by ABC News. Ambulances were provided to the state of Mississippi last month and Louisiana earlier this month. FEMA is also currently assisting North Carolina with clinical personnel for vaccine support. The federal document doesn't detail exactly which jurisdictions to which the ambulances will be deployed. The timeline is also currently to be determined. ABC11 reported last week that Wake County EMS was experiencing a large volume of calls. Because of that, it's become a daily occurrence that there are some times when there are no ambulances available to answer calls in the Raleigh city limits.
