Disaster Response

Emergency services means being prepared for anything a moments notice.  Rural/Metro MidSouth is home to the South Region Disaster Response Team. 

Our extensive staff of EMS professionals and the resources of a fleet throughout the South Zone enables Rural/Metro to receive immediate support in the event of a mass casualty or public safety disaster. Additionally, our extensive operation and development of our Disaster Response Team allows for the deployment of ambulances from East Tennessee; Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky; Birmingham, Alabama; and Poplar Bluff, Missouri within hours of the request.  Crews from Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee, including those from Shelby County, have responded to the destruction caused by Hurricanes Dennis and Katrina in the Florida panhandle and Mississippi.
