With injuries or without, plant workers and their families may need to talk to someone about this ordeal. Just having someone to listen at a time like this can mean the difference between living in fear or healing and moving on.
In the wake of the chemical plant explosion Thursday morning, Our Lady of the Lake was more prepared than ever. This was because Wednesday and Thursday the hospital and staff were undergoing evaluations to renew their trauma certification.
Dozens of people that were seeking medical attention had area hospitals preparing for a mass casualty event. Our Lady of the Lake told me the hospital was in the middle of being evaluated to become a level two trauma center.
