Disaster Logistics and Katrina Response Lessons – Part 1

hospital tent disaster logisticsCalifornia DMAT logistics officer Randall Hunter joins Disaster Podcast hosts, Jamie Davis, the Podmedic and Sam Bradley to talk about the planning and preparation that goes into the response to disaster. Hunter, as he is called by his DMAT team, relates stories of the massive planning and logistical supply challenges from the Hurricane Katrina response in New Orleans and the surrounding area.

This segment is part one of a two-part episode with Hunter. The second half will be released next week when Sam and Hunter talk about their experiences in a training deployment to the Ukraine. In that country, Sam and Hunter participated in teaching triage and response lessons to the eager responders and military personnel. Check it out next week.
