Guilford County emergency service crews are getting some temporary assistance from the federal government. 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is providing North Carolina with 25 Advanced Life Support Ambulances along with two-person crews. 

According to a news release from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, the EMS crews are being sent to areas that are experiencing greatly increased calls for service during the COVID-19 pandemic. Three of those units are being assigned to Guilford County.

The ambulance crews arrived in North Carolina on Sunday and have been provided with personal protective equipment and communications gear. They will remain in their assigned counties for 10 days. Officials will then determine if any changes need to be made.
