The Prince George's County Fire/Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department participated in a full scale mass-casualty exercise on Thursday, May 3, 2018. This exercise was in conjunction with the Maryland Region V Emergency Preparedness Coalition where departments, agencies and hospitals were evaluated for their response to handling a large number of patients.
The scenario for the Fire/EMS Department was an active shooter at Prince George's Community College in Largo, Maryland. Firefighter/Medics encountered 20+ patients with simulated injuries and deaths.
The Fire/EMS exercise went well with 20 patients/actors transported to area hospitals. Congratulations to all participants for a job well done.
