Don't miss this great talk tonight, Wednesday, Sept. 11, with one of our own, Mammoth Hospital's Dr. Mike Karch, who was one of the first doctors on the scene after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center. Karch's incredible story about the first few days after the attacks and the lessons he learned about how to best respond to such a disaster—not just medical personnel but bystanders and others—have gained him national attention and he's right here in Mammoth.
Here are the details:
What: Dr. Karch, orthopedic surgeon at Mammoth Hospital, will present a free lecture and training on Disaster Preparedness. The general public is highly encouraged to attend this informative lecture. Information to be
presented includes review of 9/11, New York and Haiti disasters, mass casualty triage, injuries by ballistics, explosions and burns, as well as a crash course in
personal disaster preparedness.
