BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — Tuesday was our Brunswick County Health and Severe Weather Expo at Brunswick Community College.

It was a chance for people to come out and find answers to their questions.

There were quite a few displays and one of the big attractions was Brunswick County Emergency Services, Mass Evacuation bus.

It’s a mobile response unit to get people out or bring medical care to those in need on a large scale.

”This one is capable of carrying 20 patients, we have also designed it so we can do rehab for firefighters,” Mark Gore with Brunswick Emergency Services said, “we can move the stretchers out of the way and put down the seats and bring firefighters or whoever on to do rehab.”

It is an impressive vehicle and there were quite a few exhibits, but it is always hard to compete with the Storm Track three weather team and their popular green wall.
