Field Drill-NEMEx 2014

FIELD DRILL

After training on all the tracks, a mass casualty accident will be simulated at the selected venues in district HQs (Shopping Mall/office/public building/educational institution etc.) with over 50 injured victims. Various response agencies will respond accordingly.

District Emergency Operation Centre (DEOC) will be activated & Members of the District Incident Response Team (IRT) will response as per IRS principle.

A staging area will be designated and all the resources deployed for response will be regulated from the Staging area.

Triage area will be set up at the different site of the “disaster” and all injured will be triaged, applying the skills learnt during the training sessions.

Every single victim’s triaged will be monitored by local evaluators trained at EMEx.

The colour coded patients (red, yellow, green, black) will be transported by GVK- EMRI 108 Ambulance Service to District hospital & other prominent private hospitals with realistic time delays built into the system.

At each hospital, the hospital emergency plan will be set into motion, and doctors, nurses, stretchers, pharmacies and equipment will be mobilized to accommodate the additional flow of patients.

Doctors trained at EMEx will run the casualty wards applying their newly acquired trauma care skills to patient care.

The entire drill will be monitored by local evaluators in addition to the faculties and will be recorded on video. A final report will be prepared under the supervision of ASDMA to examine areas of strength and improvement.
