Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Department of Health, Bureau of Emergency Medical Services needed a way to spread the word about the newly formed EMS Strike teams. Under the guidance of State Director Joe Schmieder, Pebble Hill Media was called to produce this short informational video. EMS “Strike Teams” are task forces based around the State designed to respond within 4 hours of activation to assist hard hit areas of natural and man-made disasters where local resources have been either overwhelmed, or wiped out. This video was distributed around Pennsylvania in DVD format to various municipal governments, EMS Regional Offices, and also outside of Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania EMS Strike Teams have responded to events such as Hurricane Katrina in Louisiana and Mississippi, Gustav, and most recently Hurricane Sandy and the Tropical Storm that followed assisting EMS agencies in Northern New Jersey.
