What type of medical care will be accessible following a disaster which produces many injuries?
Orange County is fortunate to have many fine emergency medical services available. The paramedics and emergency medical technicians employed by the fire departments and ambulance companies will respond in force. However, as witnessed in previous disasters, if a threat to the public's safety exists, many of these men and women may be occupied with other life saving tasks. In short, emergency medical care may be limited in the initial hours following a disaster’s impact. First Aid is the responsibility of everyone.
Making Orange County a safe, healthy, and fulfilling place to live, work, and play, today and for generations to come, by providing outstanding, cost-effective regional public services.
