Mass Casualty Incidents: First Due Lessons Learned from Storms, School Buses & September 11th
We all know the first few moments set the path for the entire incident. Today, any emergency responder might find themselves first on scene at a mass casualty incident. Because of this, it is crucial to understand the core concepts of forward movement of patients. Students will learn “first due” command and control for large and small-scale mass casualty incidents and apply these principles through role-play and scenarios using the instructor’s personal experiences from large scale incidents including Hurricane Andrew and 9/11. This dynamic program covers fundamental aspects of Triage, Treatment and Transportation in a simple, down-to-earth way so for responders to maintain forward movement of patients.
