If you see a bunch of emergency vehicles and personnel at the College of the Rockies Cranbrook campus next week — relax, it’s just a training exercise.
Third-year nursing students are teaming up with Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services and B.C. Ambulance Service paramedics to stage a mock disaster simulation on Monday, March 18.
The scenario will involve nursing students and emergency personnel responding to a mock mass casualty situation.
The goal of the exercise is to prepare nursing students for potential disaster-type scenarios they may encounter in their nursing careers.
The simulation will begin on Monday morning, and run between 9 a.m to 12 p.m.
