PCC EMT-B students part of TMC mass casualty drill

December 2, 2013

A class of PCC Emergency Medical Technology students will get a close-up look at emergency preparedness as part of a Tucson Medical Center training drill.

In the drill, part of the TMC Hospital Emergency Response Team’s mass casualty/disaster incident training, the 15 to 20 students from PCC’s Emergency Medical Technology-Basic Program will portray mass casualty victims, made up with realistic-looking wounds, who had to go through hazardous materials decontamination then be treated in an emergency room setting.

“My goal with this program has always been to provide the students with the most realistic training and preparation that we can provide,” said Wright N. Randolph, Jr. C.E.P., Pima's EMT-B program director.
