Beyond the Day-to-Day:
Mass Casualty Incident Command &
Active Shooter Training
May 2014

Planning, training, and practicing together are the keys to successful emergency
response. EMS personnel from Alamosa, Monte Vista, Center, Costilla, and
Conejos came together on April 25-26 and on May 2-3 with law enforcement ,
public health, and others from both within the region and from as far away as
Brighton and Durango.

Using current best practices, including guidance issued by
FEMA in September
2013, and by the Institute of Medicine in 2009, instructors from Operational
Consulting Group coached participants on how to ensure the best possible
outcomes for everyone at the scene.

Teams were established to contact and neutralize threats, extract victims from
the scene, perform triage, and transport patients as efficiently and effectively
as possible.  

The course was sponsored by CDPHE, coordinated by SLV EPR and SLV RETAC,
and supported by SLV Homeland Security.
