CaseEMS to stage mock mass casualty drill Nov. 2

emsOn Saturday, Nov. 2, CaseEMS will stage its annual mass casualty drill to test members’ ability to respond to a large-scale emergency.

This year, the scenario features a two-vehicle motor vehicle accident with pedestrian involvement at the corner of East 115 and East 116 streets. Past CaseEMS mass casualty incident drills include an active shooter scenario and RTA bus crash.

The drill will include responders from Cleveland and Cleveland Heights alongside campus police and EMS. Together, responders will triage, treat and transport up to 30 “patients” to University Hospitals’ emergency department.

CaseEMS is a free, volunteer ambulance squad run by students from the Case Western Reserve University community. The squad, staffed by two EMTs at minimum, provides basic life support services to the campus community, as well as on-scene emergency standby services at athletic and social events.

CaseEMS is in service 8 p.m.- 8 a.m. every weeknight and full-time on weekends. They can be reached at 216.368.3333.

Those with any questions about the mass casualty incident drill or who would like to get involved with CaseEMS should contact assistant chief Lex Martin at
