Members of the NJ EMS Task Force on Tuesday deployed a DLX Drive Thru Tent system as part of its partnership with the Visiting Nurse Association of New Jersey. The tent will be used Wednesday for drive through COVID-19 testing to help assure the staffers and visitors to a facility in Monmouth County.
The DLX Drive Thru Tent system is part of the NJEMSTF enhanced response to the pandemic and another example of multiple agencies coming together to help the residents of New Jersey.
The NJ EMS Task Force is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that represents more than 200 career and volunteer EMS providers throughout the state, who are trained in various disciplines of emergency medical services to respond to large-scale man-made and natural disasters as well as pre-planned events. The NJEMSTF has been activated since March 2020 and plays a significant role in the state of New Jersey’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, while also preparing for unseen disasters ahead.
