This session will challenge the “It can’t happen here” mentality we often see. There are unique challenges when discussing a rural response to a mass casualty incident. Most response agencies are staffed by volunteers, many who hold full time jobs in other communities. The likelihood of responders themselves, family & friends being victims of the incident provides some ethical and psychological challenges. The session will discuss several components to MCI response in rural settings and concludes with a participant centered activity where the learner to applies knowledge gained.

Program Objectives:

  • Identify the difference between Hospital (Emergency Department) Triage and Mass Casualty Triage
  • Demonstrate understanding of the concept of upside down triage
  • Describe the reasoning behind the statement “doing the greatest good for the greatest number possible”
  • List scene priorities of a mass casualty incident (MCI) response
  • Effectively describe triage categories (immediate, minimal, delayed, expectant, dead)
  • Identify hazards encountered in different mass casualty scenarios

There is no cost for this webinar, however participants must pre-register.
