LLIS Lesson Learned: Mass Casualty Incident: Establishing a Staging Area   [open pdf - 47KB]

"Incident commanders should establish a staging area and assign a visually identifiable emergency medical services (EMS) command officer to coordinate it as soon as possible after a mass casualty incident (MCI). The staging area should be large enough to contain the number of vehicles anticipated and to allow for rapid access and egress. Vehicles in the staging area should be organized by function, and EMS crews should remain with their vehicles until given an assignment."
