Acadian Responds to Major Accident on Thanksgiving
Acadian Ambulance Service responded with 20 ambulances and transported 52 patients after a traffic accident in Southeast Texas on Thanksgiving morning. According to law enforcement officials, more than 140 vehicles were involved.
Four other EMS agencies – Hamshire EMS, Labelle-Fannett EMS, Winnie-Stowell EMS and Atascocita EMS – also transported patients from the accident on Interstate 10 in Jefferson County.
Acadian units from Houston, Beaumont and Lake Charles were involved in the response, while other Acadian resources from surrounding areas were moved into those areas to maintain appropriate levels of service.
“Acadian is fortunate to have the resources required to respond to these types of incidents, while still maintaining levels of service in the communities we serve,” said Mike Burney, vice president of operations for Southeast Texas and Houston.
The nationally accredited and employee-owned Acadian provides emergency and non-emergency ambulance service to 31 counties in Texas and serves Southeast Texas and the Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin areas.
