Dan Zehner from NHERI (Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure) joins us to talk about new programs and research around wind damage to structures. We talk about the recent shift in deadly tornadoes to the U.S. South from the midwest.
Dr. Joe Holley recounts his recent trip to a USAR FEMA training center in California. The evolutions and scenarios presented the attendees, both educators and students, with a variety of very difficult and unique situations. Joe talks candidly about how strange disaster response is when compared to so-called "typical" EMS and Fire responses in a community.
This week we interview two people involved in organizing a medical mission to help Ukrainian refugees in Poland and across the border in Ukraine itself. Our guests include Dr. Kasia Hampton and Paramedic Tim Conley. Hampton studied medical school in Belgium before moving to the U.S. for her medical training in emergency medicine and pediatric medicine.
