When tested by major catastrophes, the medical community has responded. We banded together to provide emergency medical care and ongoing relief after the earthquake in Haiti and Hurricane Katrina, while the September 11thattacks brought out the best in medical response teams and care providers. Yet every emergency presents unique challenges and learning opportunities. ReachMD scrutinizes our disaster medicine plans, preparedness protocols, and emergency response capabilities. How are we preparing for the next time disaster strikes? How will we react?
