ABSTRACT

Community Emergency Response Team Triage: Handling Mass Casualty Situations [video]   [open html - 30KB]

"Medical triage is the key to doing the most good for the most people whenever there are more victims than rescuers, resources are limited, and time is critical. This training video provides an overview of the medical triage process and portrays the steps that CERT [Community Emergency Response Team] members need to follow to provide victims the most effective lifesaving support available until professional responders arrive on scene. This video will support the materials presented in the CERT Basic Training course Unit 3: Disaster Medical Operations Part 1. CERT trainers will be able to use the material presented in the video to start a dialogue about the potential challenges CERT members may face."
