The Hospitals of Providence EMS Liaison Volunteers As Hurricane Harvey Hits Texas

Sep 28, 2017
When natural disasters hit anywhere in the United States, first responders from across the nation come together to help those that need it most. This was the case when Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast in late August. Carlos Alarcon, EMS Liaison for The Hospitals of Providence, was called into action and sent to San Antonio, Texas where he served as a Medical Incident Support team member as first responders waited for the storm to hit. While there he assisted in sending the correct resources to the areas in preparation. In the days following, Carlos was sent to Rockport, Texas – the city where Hurricane Harvey made landfall. Carlos served in Rockport as a Tactical Paramedic and helped hundreds of victims affected by the hurricane.

The Hospitals of Providence thanks Carlos and all the first responders in the affected areas for their service during such critical times. Thank you for all you do!
