Dukes of Hazards: The Emergency Management Podcast


Mitch and Andrew host an irreverent (but useful) podcast about disaster response, emergency management, mobilization culture, community resilience and life in emergency operations. Also, drones. research. Movie reviews. Jokes.

Nov 16, 2017

The Dukes bring on Nicolette Louissaint, the Executive Director of Healthcare Ready, to talk about the Hurricane Maria disaster in Puerto Rico, the federal response to that disaster, and her organization's work helping the healthcare system to recover. Spoiler alert: It's all about comms and logistics. Plus, Nicolette can do wicked things with bombs and mashed potatoes, Andrew plans to rule IAEM and Mitch realizes he actually has no idea what silicon is (trust us, it's relevant). And, yes, we totally forgot to cover the US Virgin Islands, like everybody else, but we feel really bad about it.
