MedStar, and most area EMS agencies, are experiencing dramatic increases in response volumes!

For the month of August 2021, MedStar’s average daily responses were up 11% compared to March, and for the last 2 days of August, our response volume was up 20%.

Responding to an average of 552 calls per day, in the Texas heat, wearing PPE on every response and increasing concerns about contracting COVID-19, take a toll on MedStar crews, and all first responders.

Please keep all those who continue to serve on the healthcare front lines under these incredibly difficult circumstances in your thoughts and prayers!
