Mass casualty drill set for Health and Human Sciences Building on March 16

Western Carolina University’s Emergency Medical Care Program, School of Nursing and Department of Social Work are collaborating to carry out a mass casualty drill from 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, at WCU’s Health and Human Sciences Building.

About 80 students from the three academic areas will be taking part in the drill, which will be concentrated in the emergency medical care and nursing labs, organizers said. Simulated patients will have artificial blood and wounds, and simulated care providers will triage the patients in one of the EMC labs and then transport them to a nursing lab.

For information about the drill, contact Colleen Hayes, assistant professor of nursing, at 828-227-3531 or
