Podcast: Are You Prepared for an Emergency? Palmdale Regional Medical Center is!

According to the CDC, only about half of adults in the United States have the resources and plans in place for a possible emergency. Families can make emergencies less stressful by preparing in advance and working together as a team. Before making your disaster plan, it is important to know what types of emergencies are likely in your area and the best way to respond. It is also important to know what type of emergency services are available in your community so you know who to turn to in case of a disaster.

Here to speak with us today about emergency preparedness is Erik Pinnell, Disaster Coordinator at Palmdale Regional Medical Center.
