Austin, Texas – The attached video shows the incident report from Saturday December 24th.

Austin-Travis County EMS (ATCEMS) answered over 1,300 911 calls from December 22-25.

During the three-day period, ATCEMS responded to 80 environmental incident response calls and 58 cold-weather shelter transport calls. Three of the 1,377 calls concerned carbon monoxide exposure.

This call total comes after individualized reports were released Friday through Sunday to give the public a general understanding of how many calls there were during the cold spell.

During this series of operations, 58 people and six dogs were transported by individual responders to cold-weather shelters and heat centers. Also during this time, the ATCEMS Integrative Services Team moved between 400 and 500 people affected by homelessness to warm shelters. The Integrative Services team was able to achieve this by working with Capital Metro and HOST to support transportation.

Around 150 people did not want to be transported to emergency shelters. Those who did not wish to be transported were checked in every day throughout the weekend to see if anyone had changed their mind about the transport. The inclusive services team screened people in 68 different locations across the region.

The Integrative Services Team also provided blankets, coats, clothing, hand warmers and other items for those who needed them during the harsh Central Texas freeze.
