ATSU-KCOM holds disaster simulation

A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) held its annual Advanced Disaster Life Support mass-casualty simulation on March 29, 2014. Disaster Awareness Response Training  is a student-led organization committed to instructing healthcare workers to effectively respond to  disasters in the community.

Community volunteers played the role of patients and bystanders in the disaster scenario, and were made up by Hollywood moulage artists.  ATSU-KCOM partnered with public service agencies to help the community with disaster preparedness, as well as train medical students and first responders. Decontamination and hazmat drills were also part of the event.
