Detroit EMS Assists MSP On Freeway
Another example of what our first responders are doing on the highways and byways of Detroit. You won’t read about it in the media and our first responders aren’t asking for any recognition, they just do it.
Detroit January 4 2019 – 10:00PM: Michigan State Police and Detroit EMS were notified of a person on the southbound lanes of the John C Lodge Freeway late Friday night. MSP dispatch was in telephonic contact with the subject, updating MSP Troopers on the incident.
Detroit EMS Medic 6 was dispatched to the scene with DEMS supervisor 1104. Arriving first on the scene, MSP’s Trooper 2 updated MSP dispatch with the location of the subject.
Detroit EMS supervisor 1104 spotted the man in the SB lanes of the M-10, just under the Lafayette Overpass.
DEMS Medic 6 began to slow traffic in the southbound lanes as MSP’s Air Unit Trooper 2 was overhead directing MSP Troopers to the scene.
MSP ground units soon arrived and with the help of DEMS Medic 6 were able to stop traffic and make contact with the subject. He was soon detained and conveyed by DEMS Medic 6 to Detroit Receiving Hospital’s Crisis Unit.
