October 1, 2018

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Two medical response teams from North Dakota that helped with the Hurricane Florence aftermath in North Carolina have returned home.

North Dakota’s Health Department sent the teams of nurses, paramedics and emergency medical technicians to Raleigh, North Carolina, in mid-September. They returned home on Friday and Sunday.

North Carolina requested the specialized teams through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact, a mutual aid agreement among U.S. states and territories. The teams were sent through the Health Department’s Emergency Preparedness and Response section, with North Carolina reimbursing the costs.
