There will be more ambulances than usual stationed in central and eastern Oregon this weekend and early next week as crowds are expected to arrive to witness Monday’s solar eclipse. Governor Kate Brown declared a state of emergency that enabled Oregon to bring additional ambulances and attendant personnel into the state to respond as needed during the eclipse event. American Medical Response says it is providing 23 ambulance and 46 paramedics and emergency medical technicians at nine different locations at the request of the Oregon Health Authority. Those locations include the Maupin Fire Department and the Cow Canyon Rest Area. The deployment also includes a mechanic with a truck and trailer full of tools, replacement parts, and medical supplies to be stationed in Madras to handle any restocking or vehicle issues.
