A crew of about 15 doctors, nurses, paramedics and police officers left Charlotte Wednesday in two 18-wheel tractor trailers that make up MED-1. They expect to arrive in New Orleans today and stay for two weeks.Why it exists:
Should a hospital be the site of an attack or disaster, Carolinas MED-1 will serve as a satellite facility until essential services are restored.It went to Mississippi for Katrina. Now it’s coming to New Orleans.
For Mardi Gras.
Does that mean they are planning for Mardi Gras to be disaster? At least they are planning.
