Regions EMS is actively working with local, regional, and state agencies as well as local hospitals and other EMS agencies to coordinate efforts regarding preparedness to transport and treat a patient suspected of infection with the Ebola virus. The actual risk is extremely low, however public concern is extremely high, thus our efforts are focused on awareness and dissemination of information.
