Medical disaster planning goes to the dogs
Dogs weren't always a part of disaster planning... remember Katrina? Well, we are making headway. At a flu disaster training exercise coordinated by the Tennessee State Guard at Summit Medical Center, dogs were part of the plan. Experts don't want people to choose to forgo treatment because they fear that they will have to leave their pets behind. The Tennessee State Guard is thinking ahead about how they could provide food and kennels in case of a widespread medical emergency. Keep up the good work.
