  • State Medical Assistance team

    The state medical assistance team is sponsored by the University of Mississippi Medical Center. During a declared disaster, it is a resource of the Mississippi State Department of Health and will be activated by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency as an ESF-8 resource.

    The team may also be requested to respond to major events across the United States from coordinated requests through emergency management agencies.

    The SMAT has two field hospitals with each having a build-out capacity of providing a 50-bed facility, or can be combined to provide a single facility of over 100 beds during disaster events.
