300 casualties reported as Tornado hits Scout Camp

A tornado swept through a scout Campboree in Rhode Island. Leaving 300 children and adults injured in the chaos. To save the maximum numbers of survivors from the disaster, first medical response must be well managed and effective. Thankfully this wasn't a real event, it was a training exercise that RI-1 DMAT set to test their MCI response.

Early in the planning phase we were asked to provide triage training and our world leading SMART Incident Command System™.

Triage teams were dispatched to the scene, equipped with the SMART Triage Pac™, which allowed for rapid, effective Primary triage.

The SMART Commander™ facilitated accurate patient accountability, and the SMART MCI Bag™ was used to re-supply the rescuers on scene.

The exercise was a great success due to the dedication and professionalism shown by the members of RI-1 DMAT.

"The way the tag has evolved has shown thought and analysis of what is needed by the end user.. But, more importantly, it's part of a systemic approach"

"I found that you had the proper mixture of a product that was also part of a system that was capable of evolving as needed."
