“In a disaster, 911 will prioritize calls,” said Karen Sell, RN and Emergency Preparedness Chairperson at Columbus Community Hospital. “There may be trees down, roads blocked, and it could be days before anyone can move or get to you. Those services we take for granted every day may not be accessible.”
