On Saturday, February 17th about 15 students from the College of Medicine, College of Public Health, and College of Nursing will be participating in a Mass Casualty Exercise. This exercise is designed to test their capacity and capability to respond to a major medical disaster in which there are more victims than responders following their participation in a 40+ hour series of classes in Basic Disaster Life Support (BDLS) and Advanced Disaster Life Support (ADLS). The exercise will simulate either a bioterrorism, Chemical, or Radiological incident in which responders will need to do the greatest good for the greatest number of people.
Schedule of Events:
11:30 AM - Arrival for Check-in
11:45 AM - Moulage of victims and instructors will brief the volunteers/students
12:30 AM - Mass Casualty Exercise
2:30 AM - After Action discussions and evaluations of the exercise
Please RSVP by Thursday, February 15th at 11:59pm if you are able to participate. We hope to have many of our students and community partners volunteer with the goal of 50 victims/patients. If you are interested, you will need to be able to participate from 11:00am - 3:00pm on the 17th of February.
Those who participate as volunteers will get first priority in future selection of students invited to take this course. Sign-up at https://goo.gl/forms/zGBn5tqY3HBgzxXC3 to serve as a volunteer for this mass casualty exercise.
