    Default Nassau County REACT

    Question:
    Has anyone ever had to work with Nassau County REACT acting as an EMS provider? Are the an accredited agency and allowed to operate as a pt. care provider?
    Thanks!!

    Unless something's changed, REACT is a radio club w/ no EMS authority

    Don't think they have anything to do with EMS. They usually just patrol they highways and assist when needed.

    I saw the subject and was wondering how REACT got to be an EMS subject.
    REACT is a group of people, that monitor Citizens Band radio emergency channel 9. In many areas they are a good place to go, if you own a C. B. radio and your in a car and need assistance, that is, before the invention of the cell phone. There already is a thread posted about REACT. In Nassau, they used to be located in the 3601 Hempstead Turnpike building in Levittown. If EMSTeach doen't know of any change, I have to agree with him they monitor the radio and will call for you to get assistance. They also used to patrol and use amber lights. I can't say for sure that none of them are medically trained. But that was never the way they did things back in the day when C.B.'s were extremely popular.

    They don't only monitor CB now. They have their own UHF frequency that they operate on, and usually have a truck driving up the highways waiting for an accident, etc.
