Today In The Upper Cumberland: Children In Disasters

When the final story of 2017 is written, we will certainly reflect on the number of emergency situations we have seen in our nation. From the devastating waters that took over Houston to the man-made tragedies of Las Vegas….wildfires in California…the ongoing struggles in Puerto Rico. And of course, our state began the year trying to recover from the heartbreak of Gatlinburg. This week, we begin a series examining how prepared the Upper Cumberland is….for an emergency. And as we’ve seen…it could be almost any kind.

We start in an area….you might not consider. How are children cared for in an emergency? A local group stands ready to answer that need. It’s Children In Disasters Upper Cumberland Project. And Sharon Womack has been involved since its 2010 beginning.

Today In The Upper Cumberland airs each weekend as a way to introduce you to interesting people and subjects of interest to our community. Catch the show each Saturday morning at 6 on Lite Rock 95.9, Rock 93-7, and 106-9 Kicks Country.

Sunday morning, the show airs at 7am on Rock 93-7. Catch the show Sunday night at 6pm on Lite Rock 95.9 and at 7pm on 106-9 Kicks Country. You can also catch Today in The Upper Cumberland Sunday mornings at 7am and Sundays at Noon on News Talk 94.1/AM 1600.
