AFMA Rehabilitation Unit Responded to Tempe Derailment and Fire
The Arizona Fire & Medical Authority’s special rehabilitation and rehydration unit was called to the scene of the recent Tempe derailment, fire, and bridge collapse. This unit is used at the scene of major fires and incidents. Firefighters anywhere are faced with high temperatures fighting fires and intense exertion, but in Arizona, those conditions are sometimes compounded. AFMA responded under the Valley-wide Automatic Aid system.
