Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, winter storms, heat waves, fires, hazardous material and nuclear disasters can happen anywhere, on any day and at anytime. Guests, Joe Alton, M.D. and Amy Alton, A.R.N.P., are the premiere Medical Preparedness professionals and authors of, the Survival Medicine Handbook. This book has sold over 50,000 copies and is a guide for those who want to be medically prepared for any disaster when help is NOT on the way. Connie Polke, Founder and Executive Director of CHUG, Collaborative Healthcare Urgency Group, teaches organizations how to plan for, respond to and recover from disasters and emergencies. Connie says the first plan everyone should have in place is to make sure their family is emergency prepared. Once you have your family plan in place, you can reach out to help others with what is needed and what is next, before or after a disaster.
