West Virginia Flood Aftermath and Preparedness
Disaster Podcast hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis, the Podmedic are joined in this special episode by EMT and wilderness safety and EMS educator Kevin Reiter, Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group, and a podcast listener from West Virginia involved in the flood response there in June of this year, Malcolm Lanham.
We look at the response to the devastating flash floods that occurred in central West Virginia and also how that response and flooding affected the responders themselves.
