We have talked a lot about natural disasters like hurricanes and tornadoes, but not as much about the complications that go along with them. Flooding is one of the most common disasters to affect the United States, and there’s flash flooding in the Eastern part of the country as we speak.   It’s part and parcel of many different catastrophes, from the aftermath of blizzards to mudslides. Matter of fact, it’s the reason for almost 75% of presidential disaster proclamations. As such, it’s important to know how to keep your family safe during these events. Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy tell you how.

There are nearly 4000 drownings each year and young children are overly represented as victims. Find out how to keep heartbreaking tragedies like this from affecting your family. Plus, some disease-causing organisms can cause major illnesses in the long hot summer, especially when germs invade recreational water areas, both natural and man-made. All this and more in the latest Survival Medicine Hour with Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP

Wishing you the best of health in good times or bad,

Joe and Amy Alton
