Active Shooter Exercise at the University of Maryland
Paramedics encountered four semi-moulaged patients suffering from a variety of gunshot wounds located throughout the building. Personnel found victims being assisted by Health Center medical professionals and received updates before taking over patient care.
Overall, the exercise was a tremendous success. The drill demonstrated the excellent working relationships and interoperability of multiple agencies. Goals and objectives were accomplished and a critique provided a format for evaluators to discuss procedures that proved to be positive and areas were improvement is needed.
