Diabetes and disaster preparedness


Diabetes and disaster preparedness

This is a group dedicated to providing information designed to help folks with diabetes before, during, and after a disaster. I hope that others - such as family members - might also find it to be a valuable resource.

I am Walter's wife and basically I am a diabetic and a dispatcher for the Red Cross and a retired RN. I call Walter Wally instead of Tommy; but his classmates and other people that have known him for a long time call him Tommy.
