300 casualties reported as tornado hits Scout Camp
A tornado swept through a Scout Campboree in Rhode Island leaving 300 children and adults injured in the chaos. To save the maximum numbers of survivors from the disaster, first medical response must be well-managed and effective. Thankfully this wasn't a real event, it was a training exercise that RI-1 DMAT set to test their MCI response.
Early in the planning phase we were asked to provide triage training and our world leading SmartTriage™ System. Triage teams were dispatched to the scene, equipped with the SmartTriage™ Pack, which allowed for rapid, effective primary triage. The SmartTriage™ Command Kits facilitated accurate patient accountability, and the SmartTriage™ MCI Bag was used to re-supply the rescuers on-scene. The exercise was a great success due to the dedication and professionalism shown by the members of RI-1 DMAT.
