On Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. the Takoma Park/Spring Health Science programs will be conducting a Mass Casualty Drill. This is an interdisciplinary training exercise for students from several of the health science programs. The simulation involves students and instructors from Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Emergency Management, Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Physical Therapy Assistant, Public and Community Health, Mental Health, Surgical Technology and many other volunteers from Montgomery College campuses. This will mark the fifth year for this training exercise.

Volunteers who participate in this unique learning experience have an opportunity to interact with all of the other disciplines in order to practice their patient communication and health care skills in a controlled but chaotic "disaster". Literature suggests that this type of drill is an effective tool in training future health care providers in dealing with a large number of patients in a short period due to a natural or man-made disaster.

It takes many volunteers to make this event a success. We still have openings for patient and support positions. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Professor Dayton at with the following information: Full name, email, cell phone number, major, age, gender, languages spoken (other than English), position desired (patient/visitor/support) and any other information we should know about you (challenges, etc.). You will be contacted with more information. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Professor Dayton by April 1, 2019.
