College stages annual Mock Disaster event on Cumberland campus

Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College staged its seventh annual Mock Disaster Drill recently on the Cumberland campus. Some 150 first responders and students, enrolled in the Southeast nursing program, participated. For the mock drill, the scenario featured a gunman on campus leaving in his wake many critically wounded. Participants manned a triage center and then transported victims to a makeshift emergency room in Falkenstine Hall. Here, students, braving a drenching rain, carried a victim across the campus and to the ER.
