On 7/7/2023, prior to the opening ceremony for the Dixie Youth baseball tournament, a severe thunderstorm struck the area with strong winds and heavy rain. LREMS personnel were in our first aid tent when the strongest wind struck. The tent was lifted and taken about 100 feet before striking a barrier fence. Our personnel were able to self extricate and received only minor injuries. The tent was destroyed. As for the storm, there was no warning and no time to evacuate.
This is another example of the risks first responders take to help their communities. We are blessed no one was injured seriously.
LREMS wishes to extend its condolences to the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office in the passing of Detective Patrick Locklear on 6-11-2023.

Please continue to keep Detective Locklear’s family and friends in your prayers in the days ahead.

Renovations have begun on our helipad. This is the first major renovation to the helipad since it’s construction in 1981. This project includes surface preparation, a new four inch layer of specialized concrete and the installation of new LED marker and flood lights. This would not be possible without the help of our partners, UNC Southeastern and Air Methods/AirLife 2. Current flight operations have been moved to the Lumberton Airport and will return when the project is complete.
