TSTC students prepare for mass casualty incident to get certified
If you passed by the Texas State Technical College campus in Abilene Thursday morning – you were no doubt greeted by what appeared to be a grisly scene.
TSTC students spent the morning running through a mass casualty incident drill. Students had to practice retrieving would-be victims from crashed cars while coordinating with various first responders. They also had to practice putting the victims on stretchers and loading them into ambulances or a helicopter.
A TSTC spokeswoman said the drill helps students get practice before they are certified to deal with such incidents.
