Posted January 16th, 2014 @ 1:59pm

Hawaii flunked disaster preparedness, according to a rating from the American College of Emergency Physicians.  The group gave the Aloha State and "F," because of its failure to support emergency patients.  ACEP President Dr. Alex Rosenau says Congress and President Obama must make it a national priority to strengthen the emergency medical care system.  In addition to Hawaii, 12 other states flunked the national report card.  They include Delaware, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Montana, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Washington state, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
