Not if, but when....

Disaster preparedness is a monumental challenge. The breadth and depth of hospital preparedness may be near impossible to imagine in the face of our daily 'disasters'. Fortunately, preparation for the infrequent disasters increases our capacity, thus raising the threshold for what constitutes a disaster.
