Thursday, September 10th, 2009

They are preparing for the worst but hoping for the best.

Target 11 has learned that many of the hospitals in the city have been working very closely with the Secret Service preparing for the G-20.

Doctors and nurses at Allegheny General and UPMC in Oakland are going over their emergency checklist one last time, making sure they are ready.

Harchelroad said,"The preps for the G-20 are really the same for any type of disaster.”
