Exercise will take place on Sunday, March 18th 8:00am – 12:00pm(actual volunteer reporting time and assignment ending time will vary depending on your role).
What we are testing:
Patient tracking capabilities from a disaster scene to the hospital.
Why you should be involved:
First of all, it is fun! How often do you get to play with fake blood and first responders, at one of the most beautiful historic buildings in Dallas?If this isn’t justification enough, this exercise can be used as community service hours, merit badges for youth scouts, and exercise credit for preparedness and CMS requirements.
During a large performance, the stage at the Majestic Theater collapses, severely injuring those that were on the stage. The Majestic Theater staff will begin evacuating attendees as first responders arrive and triage injured patients. Injured patients are then transported to one of five pre-designated area hospitals; where they will be triaged, admitted and discharged.
