Installment topics include natural disasters, chemical and biological agents, pandemic influenza and other emerging infections, and disaster volunteerism. The series premieres at 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 5, on UCTV, which is available on Dish Network, through select cable systems and online at www.uctv.tv.
