Tidewater EMS Council recently hosted training at it's warehouse for members of the VA-1 Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT) which included field training (logistics, setting up and supplying tents, electronic medical system) and hands-on training (respiratory and cardiac monitoring). Training is an essential part of being ready to deploy at any moment and the opportunity to work together as a team and gain experience with the equipment that will be utilized is tremendously valuable.

DMATs are part of the National Disaster Medical System (NDMS) within the federal Department of Health and Human Services. DMATs typically deploy as 48-person mobile medical units, or smaller strike teams, to augment local health care personnel and facilities in times of disaster. 

DMATs are capable of standing up self-supporting temporary emergency medical care centers, providing supplemental medical staff for denuded hospitals following disasters and providing airhead support for the movement of casualties from a disaster area to available health care resources in unaffected areas of the nation.

Interested in joining VA1-DMAT?  The National Disaster Medical System will advertise and accept applications for available team positions on USAJobs.gov, search keyword "NDMS".
