Northern California Wildfires and Lessons Learned: Medical Health Response and Shelters

Dana Halvorson and Erin Prendergast

The U.S. National Library of Medicine’s Disaster Information Management Research Center recently posted a recording about lessons learned from the northern California wildfires of 2017, the medical health response, and the need for shelters.  Panelists discuss their experiences in responding to the fires, which affected five counties, and the community and personal impact of the fires.  The 6,000 structures destroyed included homes, businesses, and hospitals.  The recording can be found here.  AHCA/NCAL also has an emergency preparedness website that you might find of interest.
