Her preconference workshop:
Mass Casualty Incident Management
Karen Owens, Emergency Operations Assistant Manager, Virginia Office of EMS
Large-scale incidents are becoming more and more prevalent in every locality. Mass casualty incidents (MCI) have many causes: transportation crashes, natural disasters, criminal/terrorist incidents, technical hazards, and civil disobedience. Regardless of the cause, an MCI taxes first responders and resources. Appropriate incident management begins with the first on-scene and continues until the incident is cleared. Since traditional methods of patient assessment will not ensure that the largest number of patients survive, triage must be quickly initiated to do the greatest good for the greatest number. First responders can apply the scene management techniques taught here to any MCI, regardless of the triage method used. This workshop will discuss appropriate methods to set up and perform patient triage, treatment, and transport. The procedures are designed for incidents where there are more injured than you can handle with available resources.
And her classroom session:
Karen C. Owens, Assistant Manager, Virginia Office of Emergency Medical Services
Little thought is put into preplanning buildings and events for the potential EMS issues that may occur. Agencies need to begin looking at facilities in their response areas that may require a heavier response of EMS during special situations. These facilities could include buildings with special needs populations and sites that support the congregation of a large number of people at a time—churches, nursing homes, schools, sporting events, major fairs/craft shows/outdoor events, and amusement/theme parks. The need for preplans, the basic preplan process, areas in the locality that may benefit from EMS preplanning, and the elements to be in included in an EMS preplan are discussed. BASIC
