Conditions of Use
Disaster response. It sounds so… epic when you say it. It rolls off of your tongue and into your brain when you say it. By that I mean that when you say it lots of questions pop up in your head. Some of them are, what is it and what does it mean? How does our world need do to better on it? And, why would someone as cool as him be interested in it? I’ll explain each one.
Disaster response (my guess) is how we respond to things like earthquakes, tsunamis, and tornados. In other words disaster response is how we help the victims of disasters. The dictionary doesn’t say disaster response, so I’ll tell you what a disaster is. A disaster is something like an event or occurrence causing great distress. So that would mean that disaster response is how we deal with the distress, and how we help the people who have or are victims of the distress. An example is the earthquake in Japan.
Now it’s time for the next thing we talk about. It’s how our world needs to improve on disaster response. Recently in Nevada there was the Air Races. At the Air Races there was a crash, and many people were either killed or seriously injured. The Renown hospital was on code triage. That is when the hospital finds all available workers, and everyone has to do something. My brother was at the Air races that day, but he left before it happened. Anyways, I think triage is a good idea. I think that because the more people you have, the more people will be healed. But there are some bad things about code triage. One thing is, say you had a hospital and you were on code triage. One of your patients has a very serious injury. The person who specializes in your patients category is missing. Then you go and look for the second best, and that person’s missing too. So it keeps going on, and on, and by the time you find a person to do the job, your patient’s dead. So I think that if the person isn’t very far away, you should fly them there to help.
Now it’s time for the final part of my blog. I tell you why I’m interested in this. I think that everyone should get the right kind of doctors for what they need. I think that because I would want the right doctor, and I know everybody else would. I also feel bad for the victims, and the doctors on code triage. I think that it must be terrifying being a victim, because when I saw the crash, I was scared! My final reason is that if I had a horrible injury, I would want to get better as fast as I could.
Well, I hope that you learned about disaster response. If you didn’t, this was a big waste of time for both of us. I learned a lot too! I had a good time writing this, and getting writer’s cramp. See ya!
P.S. Kids, do your homework ! I don’t want to be held accountable for some kids reading my blog instead of doing homework. Get good grades! Bye!
