Mock Disaster Drill Helps JVS Students Earn First Aid Certification

November 20, 2015 -- The JVS Plumbing and Pipefitting lab looked like a very scary place recently, but luckily it was just the setting for a mock disaster drill for the Allied Health Science students with the plumbing students doing a very realistic job of being the victims.
During the drill the students used their first aid and safety skills to treat the patients, who had suffered some “fall mishaps”, acting as the first responders.
Students were observed and graded by EMT Paramedic students from the LCCC Emergency Medicine Services Program.
This exercise was the students’ final assessment for their safety and first aid certification. Students who earned the certification will also receive two college credits for the coursework take at the JVS.
"This activity is a great way for our students to apply the skills they have been taught in the lab in a more realistic setting," commented Allied Health Science instructor Holly Sofia. "Even though the day's activities were a drill, the students saw the important implications of being prepared for a major event."
