The Role of Staging at MCIs

Wednesday, May 20, 2009 - 2:00pm (EST)



Watch the archived webcast below!

This webcast will focus on the staging of vehicles and equipment, a critical but often neglected area of mass casualty incidents (MCIs). Although caregivers do an exceptional job of treating and triaging victims, the essential function of rapid transportation often gets delayed because of inefficient or ineffective staging and deployment of resources. Heightman will offer important tips to make these functions easy, inexpensive and effective.
