evacuation plan cars highwayEvacuation plans and the decisions that go into ordering evacuations of metropolitan areas is the topic of choice today on the Disaster Podcast. In this episode, we have hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley, to kick off the discussion. Also joining the call are Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group, and paramedic/author B.J. Schneider (xiphosbooks.net).

The discussion starts with a look at the Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada wildfire evacuations where 88,000 people were evacuated from the city to escape the flames. We then tie it back to evacuation plans for areas at risk for hurricanes, flooding, and other disasters.

cadaver labIn this week’s episode, we look at a topic we’ve mentioned many times here on the Disaster Podcast over the last few years, but we have never really defined what we are talking about. I am referring to the use of cadavers for training and education in disaster and medical response.

When we refer to the Paragon Medical Education Group’s “Experiential Training” we are talking about the unique situations they create through the use of real human tissue for training purposes. In this episode, Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon shares some information about the source of the team’s cadavers and the very special gift they represent to help us all have a better chance of surviving a major medical event in our lives.
