OK, hospital might be a bit grand, but if the need arose to treat mass casualties on a moment’s notice, local emergency responders do have an inflatable device that can house up to 16 patients. It even has heart monitors. Owned by the state but stored here just in case, the facility was on display last Thursday outside of the EMS building on US 127 Bypass. “It’s a state asset,” said Anderson County Public Safety Director Bart Powell, who, along with his staff, was preparing for mandatory state meetings and drills scheduled for this later this month. “We can use it during a natural disaster or a [weapons of mass destruction] event. “If an area hospital’s emergency room were decimated, we could take there and function in the parking lot.” And it’s mobile. Powell said the facility can be moved to wherever it is needed, even outside of Anderson County if the need arose.
