KU Tampa Participates in Mass Casualty Exercise
Keiser University Tampa Nursing department students and faculty chaperones, Desiree Staggs, Lynn Morgan, and Gerry Ouellette served as volunteer victims during Hillsborough County’s mass casualty annual exercise.
The Hillsborough County Department of Health, in coordination with the Hillsborough County Public Safety Operations Complex and other key organizations, unite each year with the county’s Emergency Operations Center, to train in the event of a large-scale critical incident. This coordinated drill is carried out simultaneously at all of our Tampa Bay area hospitals with the intention of testing their ability to respond if a sudden influx of patients occurs as a result of a simulated disaster.
By participating in this exercise, our students are better equipped to face a mass casualty scenario that could potentially occur in the future. This exercise training, also, greatly contributes to the overall preparedness of our greater Tampa Bay community.
