« on: June 14, 2011, 06:01:30 AM »
Where is MERV 3 kept? and where was it kept in 1998/1999? Because it makes a small background appearance in my favorite movie and i would like to know what hospital it was kept at?

You may be right but that would seem odd since there is not a FDNY EMS station at Wycoff last I knew.

MERV ( Major Emergency Response Vehicle ) manned by EMS

The MERV is manned by an EMT operator 24/7. Upon response to an incident the I.C. will designate a responding ambulance crew(s) to "man the Merv." This crew will now evaluate, treat and designate patients that need to be transported to a hospital. At an MCI there are various segments, i.e., Staging, Triage & Treatment and Transport all under the auspices of an EMS officer and 99% of the time there is only one Officer for quite a while handling all the sectors.

  Thanks there "Memory Master". I was always wondering about that myself.
