SPE­CIAL HEALTH NEEDS

201 Health - - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder -

Dur­ing 2011’s Hur­ri­cane Irene, Jef­frey Kim says his fam­ily in River Vale lost power for days. Nor­mally that would be an in­con­ve­nience, but be­cause Kim’s young daugh­ter is on a spe­cial diet for epilepsy, it was, he says, “a disas­ter.”

“We had been us­ing ice to keep things cool, and then I wound up driv­ing to Philadel­phia to get an emer­gency gen­er­a­tor,” Kim says. “My wife said, ‘Never again.’”
