SXSW 2017 incident response reporting

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

With all the festivities going on this week, Austin-Travis County EMS shores up its downtown presence today at 3 p.m. Starting then, ATCEMS will activate its Casualty Collection Point at the corner of Fifth and Congress. Each day, the agency will plot the incidents on an interactive map that will include information about the location, the response and patient dispositions. Information about the incidents will be included in a press release to be sent out by 1 p.m. the next day (beginning on Wednesday). Check out the live audio feed of ATCEMS radio traffic in the area here (also kicking off at 3 p.m. today).
