I'm not sure how having a rehab sector set up would have prevented the explosion from killing one and injuring nine.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is an odd segue into a rehab discussion. I understand the explosion probably prolonged the incident, leading to the need for rehab, but it's still a little awkward. Not enough of a transition from a writing standpoint.I'm not sure how having a rehab sector set up would have prevented the explosion from killing one and injuring nine. While it would certainly reduce the response time, I can't see how rehab would prevent this.
Skip, that sounds like a very well-thought out and practiced system.
We looked at an EVAC bus as well. We'd love to have one, but we have to get it funded first.
I was pretty impressed by the capabilities. It wouldn't help us much for rehab compared to our current system, but if we ever have to evacuate a lot of smoke inhalation patients from a high rise/mid rise from a fire or evacuate a nursing home to somewhere else prior to a hurricane, the EVAC bus would be just the ticket.
