Segment: Hazardous-materials drill at Harborview

Harborview Medical Center regularly conducts emergency drills to ensure staff are prepared for influxes of patients during disasters. Watch how it would respond to a massive chemical spill or other physical contamination.  Stephen Morris, emergency medicine specialist, offers advice on how you, too, can be ready if disaster strikes.

In a separate downloadable video, Morris discusses how hospitals and caregivers function during a hurricane such as Michael, which hit Florida today.
