This was a very difficult morning for our team members and our organization.
The 15 minutes of extreme hail left most vehicles in our parking lots extensively damaged. In all, 11 ambulances, 8 admin vehicles, 30 new chassis planned for the ambulance remount project and over 50 employee vehicles received significant damage.
Thankfully, no one was injured and our entire team rose to the occasion!
We want to publicly thank all our staff who rolled up their sleeves and got to work, even when they sustained heavy damage to their vehicles. We also want to thank MWR and MedStar Exec Team for offering financial assistance, as well as the three mobile glass companies that came to repair our ambulances and to assist with employee vehicles: Richardson Auto Glass, Auto Glass Center & Auto Glass Now.
Also special thanks to Papa Murphy's at I-30 and Green Oaks for delivering pizza's for our crews (thanks Ann, and to Enterprise on Hulen Street for assuring our Team members were able to get on the priority list for car rentals!
