Significant number of medical evacuees expected to land in Lexington County tonight

September 29, 2017

WEST COLUMBIA, S.C.—The Federal Coordinating Center (FCC) that has been set up at the Columbia Metropolitan Airport in Lexington County to receive, triage, transport and track the sick and injured evacuated from islands decimated by Hurricane Maria will be receiving a large flight of patients tonight.

 

Response personnel from dozens of local, state, federal and military agencies as well as 12 regional hospitals and healthcare facilities were told this morning to expect the arrival of a number of patients by way of a C-130 military transport plane at around 11:30 p.m. Friday

 

“Everybody here is prepared for this influx of patients,” said Incident Commander and FCC-Columbia Director Col. Eric Edwards. “Being entrusted to care for these critically injured patients reminds us of the importance of this historic mission.”

 

Once they are received here in Lexington County, they will be evaluated before being distributed to medical facilities locally and in other parts of the region that can best help them with their particular medical needs
