Medical Disaster Resource Unit
Genesee County has a new resource to facilitate EMS and First Responders needs in the event of a disaster or Mass Casualty Incident (MCI).
STAT EMS with the Genesee County Medical Control Authority formed this unit dubbed Medical Disaster Resource Unit or MDRU. The unit is equipped with multiple medical supplies such as backboards, bandages, trauma supplies, neck collars, additional scene lighting, and generators. All of which were funded through grant money from Region 3 and the Genesee County Medical Control Authority. Fenton City Fire Department has provided a generator, electrical cords, and lighting for night time deployment.
The MDRU is available 24 - 7 - 365 and is housed at STAT's main headquarters located at 520 West Third Street, Flint, MI. In addition, STAT's internal MDRU Response Team consists includes drivers training school and routine disaster drills are held to ensure our response meets and exceeds the needs of 911.
To learn more or would like a tour of the MDRU, please contact the Operations Department at 810.238.7672 ext. 214.
