Planning for a disaster
February 23, 2014
MacMurray College will be hosting a triage/disaster drill on Saturday, March 1 at 1 p.m. The event will close down a block of Clay Street between State Street and College Street.
During the morning of the drill, students will learn the different types of disasters and the roles they play in those disasters. That training will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Putnam/Springer Center on MacMurray College’s campus.
Students from the social work, psychology, criminal justice, homeland security, and nursing programs will be participating. Also volunteering at this year’s event: the National Guard 709th Area Support Medical Company, Lifestar Paramedic Dave Bey, and Neighborhood Guys and Gals 4-H.
Dr. Georgine Berent, associate professor at MacMurray College, is in charge of the event.
