Mass-Casualty Response for First-Due Companies

Thursday, April 27
Mass-casualty training too often focuses on the expanded ICS roles of multiple companies at a large MCI. This class focuses on the first five minutes of the first company's arrival. Whether you're assigned to an engine, truck, wildland, or even responding POV with your volunteer department, you need the tools and skills to be able to quickly and accurately direct the resources coming in behind you. This class covers how to identify hazards; anticipate MCIs; quickly size up the scene and report conditions via radio; and deploy triage, treatment, or other teams as indicated. Chief officers can also practice receiving these reports from other attendees, making the class accessible to all ranks from all kinds of departments.'
