Read a Book

I know that Halloween is over, but if you're still looking for something scary to keep you keep you up all night, give "Five Days at Memorial" by Sheri Fink a try. The book follows the staff and patients of New Orleans Memorial Hospital in the harrowing days after Hurricane Katrina. If you are in the medical, first response or emergency management field, this book is a MUST read. It's also a great read for anyone who wants to know the true impacts of not being adequately prepared or trained for a disaster. Heart wrenching decisions had to be made in the wake of the storm and, whether or not you agree with them, it's fascinating to see how people react and respond.
