ATSU prepares for the worst…A.T. Still University- Kirksville College of Medicine (ATSU-KCOM) and the State Emergency Management Agency held its first ever Disaster Awareness Response Training (DART) on March 24.

This is the first time a medical school has teamed up with the state to prepare students, emergency responders, and healthcare professionals for a mass casualty disaster simulation.

More than a dozen partner agencies in Northeast Missouri played a role in the simulation, which was part of an Advanced Disaster Life Support (ADLS) course coordinated by the National Disaster Life Support Foundation (NDLSF) under the American Medical Association.

The disaster simulation included a school bus accident, where Kirksville firefighters extricated the side of the bus so that students in the ADLS course could learn to triage patients. ADLS students also worked through other scenarios such as a field hospital and bombing incident. Patients were played by community member volunteers who wore professional moulage makeup.

ATSU-KCOM is one of three official NDLSF regional training centers for the state of Missouri.
