The admiral has at least two
other resources besides his fleet
and shore facilities: hospitals and
religious centers. Close
communications with hospitals
will be needed when
determining both if evacuations
of patients are needed as well as
where survivors found in the
water or along shore are to be
sent. In addition, hospitals
should be able to serve as
independent generators of
electrical power and
communications hubs.
It is critical that hospitals have seismic structural integrity
and not add to the problem.
