The TX EMTF program is excited to welcome three new buses into our AMBUS program. Fort Bend County EMS, the first of the new generation AMBUS (AMBUS 2.0), came online earlier this year. With the addition of Corpus Christi Fire/EMS and Acadian EMS in early 2020, the EMTF program's statewide AMBUS count will increase to 16.
The TX EMTF's Infectious Disease Response Unit (IDRU) reached a new milestone today with the addition of a pre-hospital team in TX EMTF 1. All 8 EMTF regions now have a pre-hospital team for the treatment and transfer of patients with high-consequence infectious diseases.
