WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With construction crews still repairing damage from last year’s catastrophic Hurricane Sandy and residents of Moore, Okla. just starting to deal with the tragic aftermath of yesterday’s devastating tornado, the importance of being prepared for natural disasters has never been more apparent. That’s especially true with the 2013 hurricane season beginning next week, and weather forecasters predicting another busy year for hurricane activity. Emergency preparedness is critically important for dialysis patients who depend upon regular blood filtering treatments to remove waste products and extra fluids from their blood after their kidneys have failed. Fortunately, Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA), the nation’s leading network of dialysis facilities, has years of experience in preparing for hurricanes, tornados, floods, severe thunderstorms and other emergencies that could potentially interrupt life-sustaining treatments for its more than 167,000 U.S. patients without kidney function.
