A gas explosion at the Briercroft Manor Apartment sent five people to the Timothy J. Harnar burn unit at UMC this morning. The specialized burn unit opened in Lubbock back in 1981, and for 32 years now, it has been the only facility between Dallas and Albuquerque. HealthWise at Five today, we've invited two people, Eric Finley, the Marketing Director at UMC, and Chris Teague, the Director of EMS at UMC to explain why this is such an important component of the medical community here.
