Tornado Disaster Drill (IN)

Start Date: 10/07/2017


Disaster readiness drill. Scenario: tornado hit populated area, multiple injuries - with delay on professional help due to size of disaster. CERT teams where mock deployed to assist, assess for a residential location with over 30 people simulating injured or dead. Some situations involved minors. Several CERT teams requested us to help wait at the medical station to keep victims calm while waiting for transport or treatment. Charlie did great, went up and laid next to the individuals and let the know they were going to be helped. At the debriefing, the "victims" commented on how they were not left alone and that charlie and I were there after the initial treatment and assuring them.
