Mock Disaster recently held on Cumberland campus provides opportunity to prepare for a real crisis scenario

Southeast Kentucky Community amp; 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. The Southeast Kentucky Community amp; Technical College crisis team used the mock disaster as an opportunity to plan and test lockdown procedures in the case ofa real emergency. SKCTC also tested the newly launched crisis website takeover system that displays crisis information on the Southeast webpage if a real situation were to ever occur.
