Default State Medical Needs Shelter

from MS DEPT of HEALTH --

this location is in SE MS

--================================================== ============================

On June 1st, the Mississippi State Department of Health officially opened the first stand-alone State Medical Needs Shelter in the country, designed to house Mississippians with medical support needs during an emergency or disaster.

Under construction since 2014, the $7.7 million facility is located on Coy Avenue in Wiggins, near the existing general population shelter. Built to FEMA 361 standards, it's designed to withstand winds up to 200 miles per hour. It also contains a negative-pressure infectious disease isolation room the first of its kind in any medical needs shelter in the U.S.

The 23,416 square-foot facility will offer shelter to those with medical needs exceeding what could be offered in a general population shelter, and is self-sustaining for 36 hours with a backup power source and sewer and water connections. The layout is designed to make the facility versatile in the type of care that can be provided, and contains extensive telehealth capabilities for communications with the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson.

Property for the shelter was generously provided by Stone County officials. Funding was provided by federal Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funds and made possible through partnerships with FEMA, MEMA, and other state and local partners.

Great idea. But 36 hours - sounds like a death camp. Those people by definition that can't be treated elsewhere will need a lot more backup power than 36 hours. That will turn into a triage facility by accident, or perhaps not.

Nothing could go wrong by throwing a bunch of sick and injured people who are scared and desperate into one location.
