Very informational

Very informational, you can learn so much but sometimes it may seem a little drawn out and boring but the info is worth it

What about the Wildfires on the west coast??

Hi guys! I am a RN, and got interested in disaster medicine about 2 years ago when I started volunteering with the Red Cross. I was able to deploy to CA Wildfires, flood in Baton Rouge, and Hurricane Matthew last summer and gain some incredible experiences. I love listening to your podcast. Haven't missed an episode, however, I live on the West coast and we have been experiencing some devastating wildfires! I haven't heard one thing mentioned about it. I'm just curious...
Thank you for all your hard work!
