How to respond to a mass-casualty event? Practice

Asante is collaborating with the Medford School District to hold an active shooter drill.


Asante Three Rivers held a similar drill in 2018.

When tragedy strikes, the best thing a school or hospital can do is be prepared. That’s why Asante Rogue Regional will be participating in a mass-casualty exercise with Medford School District on June 22.

This exercise has involved many months of planning and will simulate a complex active-shooter situation at a local high school.

Helping to coordinate the event are local law enforcement, emergency medical services, fire department personnel, the City of Medford Emergency Management, Jackson County Emergency Management, Providence Medford Medical Center and many others.

As part of the drill, ARRMC will receive more than a dozen injured “patients” (volunteer actors). Hospital Incident Command will be activated to manage the event. Many leaders from various departments systemwide are participating.

This exercise will provide an opportunity to practice, learn and prepare for a real event. It also will allow us to continue building relationships with our community partners.

If you’re interested in helping, we would welcome you to observe and evaluate the learning objectives. Please reach out to me or Scott Clemetson at em*******************@as****.org.
