Good morning all,
A colleague EM (we're all retired) sent me the above link in re the first in nation emergency shelter with the state of the art quarantine room.
Believe the cost was $7.7M.
I post this to show, or,at least, generate interest, the actual infrastructure we need for emergency evacuations. Locally, our paramedics/EMTs say there's not enough hospital/clinic space for big emergencies. Our local shelter multi-county emergency shelter has a BLS/ALS component but it's limited - with one big headache being flooded roads inhibiting responder access.
Specialized emergency shelters are probably (my opinion only; have not yet seen Federal contingency budgets) the wave of the future.
We are in a "historic first"; we live longer than previous generations. In many nations (not the US) younger population replacement is at the danger level.
Now, back to helping prep our local functional needs registry..............
