Event description

Description

Medical training is one of the most critical things a CERT volunteer can take.

But, even with training and certification, those medical skills fade rapidly without practice. Unless you work as an EMT and do the skills on a daily basis, you need to practice and exercise them.

This year we're breaking up the CERT medical training (Classes 3 and 4) into their core components (Triage, Treatment, and Transport) and focus on each of these core skills so that you are more confident in your ability to perform them.

On Saturday, February 24th, our Triage Drill will focus on rapid assessment of victims during a mass casualty incident, sorting them into one of four categories: Minor or Walking Wounded, Moderate or Delayed, Major or Immediate, and Dead or Expectant.

We will have scenes set up of moulaged victims and experienced EMTs, paramedics, and nurses on hand to coach you through the process and help you think logically (rather than emotionally) about how rapidly triage an incident.

Sign in for resucers is 0900-0930.

Sign in for victims, coaches, and make-up artists is 0800.
