Kentucky Flooding Response AAR with Dr. Joe Holley

water-rescue-floodingDr. Joe Holley was deployed with Tennessee Task Force One USAR team as part of the Federal FEMA response teams helping state and local resources in search and rescue efforts in Kentucky. Now Dr. Joe comes on the show to discuss his experiences with this particular response and the aftermath for responders as they return home from the deployment.

If you haven’t followed this story, here’s a link to the original Kentucky flooding event, called a 1 in a thousand type weather event. We covered it right after Joe deployed in the 2 podcasts before this one.
