In an attempt to make sure that the survivors and evacuees of hurricane Gustav who have been hospitalized have a place to go... Fort Worth... with it's excellent public and private hospital system... has been made the Western Focal Point for incoming hospital patients being air-lifted from New Orleans.
Right now it appears that New Orleans may once again bear much of the brunt of the hurricane winds... and the crushing tidal surge that accompanies hurricanes of such magnitude.
Right now the plans are for hospital-bound patients to be airlifted by the National Guard (I'm glad there are still some here). They will be flown here using the giant C-130 cargo planes into DFW International Airport... and then taken by ambulance to the many area hospitals awaiting their arrival.
Fort Worth is most fortunate to have such a great hospital system... and our great city willingly and gladly awaits the arrival of those who otherwise would be trapped by Gustav's onslaught.
New Orleans... Fort Worth is Here For You !
