About MERGe

 

The Kansas MERGe Team is designed to bring the ambulance services within Kansas together to face the challenges of major medical responses.These include tornadoes, mass transit accidents, floods, hospital evacuations, explosions and other events. When an incident begins to pull resources from outside the immediate area or county of occurrence, or if it involves multiple counties in size or response, the MERGe Team is designed to provide a plan and response system to assist local services in managing the incident. Although the MERGe Team was originally developed in Kansas Region III/VI, and currently most most team members are from the EMS Regions, the MERGe Team is available to respond to assist in any area of Kansas.​
