Wes Wallace, MD attended a FEMA affiliated Course at the Charlotte Fire Academy September 19-23 learning to treat and extricate victims trapped in collapsed buildings and he is now certified as a disaster medical specialist. Dr. Wallace says this “Mostly that means I can crawl on my belly through very tight spaces in rubble piles, start IV's and secure airways while lying in very weird positions and treat folks to reduce the life threats that come from crush syndrome. It was rather like being six years old and playing in a very strange sand box.”
