BRUNSWICK, Georgia (CNN) -- As Hurricane Bonnie closes in on the U.S. Atlantic coast, four federal emergency units are on alert here, practicing what they'll do if disaster strikes.

The National Disaster Medical Assistance Teams -- made up of doctors, nurses, physicians assistants and emergency medical technicians -- will be called in should Washington declare a federal disaster and there are victims who need help.

A total of 41 such teams are available throughout the United States. Watch this report from CNN's Holly Firfer to see how they get ready for a call they hope never comes.
