Fire-Dex Customer Care Rep Sarah Finch Participates In Mass Casualty Training

PIC CHOICE 1

On July 6, 2013, Fire-Dex’s Customer Care Rep Sarah Finch was able to take part in the Brunswick Ohio mass casualty training. With fire departments from three jurisdictions in attendance, a head-on vehicular collision was simulated in exact, real-world conditions. After the firefighters arrived on the scene they were able to assess the “victims’” injuries and practice extracting passengers from the vehicles. Sarah remarks that it was “A very hot, but exciting day.”

Fire Medic Andrew Pavell says that this type of training will go a long way towards preparing the city to respond to serious car accidents in the future. All in all, Pavell says that everything went flawlessly. The exercise not only allowed firefighters and EMT’s to better prepare for major accidents, but also helped foster teamwork and leadership between all emergency responders.

  1. I am a member who responded to the four fatality crash on RT15 South in Jefferson Twp. Saturday night was a rough night and our MCI training was used to great effect in helping the wounded. I cannot stress how important this type of training is. Stay safe out there everyone and thank you.
