Students play dead for EST

Emergency drill in Mallinckrodt gives medics hands-on training. The blood was only red corn syrup, but that didn’t stop EST’s red Explorers from storming Mallinckrodt yesterday as medics rushed to save “injured” victims. Emergency Support Team (EST) medics conducted a disaster drill Sunday, attending to roughly 25 students with injuries ranging from third degree burns and broken legs to smoke inhalation and swollen abdomens. According to Disaster Drill Co-Chair Erica Kane, a drill is conducted each semester in order to train EST medics and make sure protocols are effective. The fall drill is much smaller and usually takes place on the South 40. The spring drill is larger, with the whole team of medics participating.

Chairs and other debris were placed over and around student victims to make access for medics difficult. Full Story
