Course description 

Participants from various backgrounds and experience in mass casualty incident planning and response will collaborate similar to the constituents involved in the creation of an actual mass casualty incident response plan.  The class will be divided into three committees to work together and collectively to produce a hazard vulnerability analysis, resource analysis and a mass casualty incident plan of a fictional country. Participants will receive lessons from experts, breakout sessions to guide each of the committees to work towards completion of their assignments, and a computer simulation to exercise their plan.

Learning objectives

1. To identify and gather relevant constituents to research, create and implement a mass casualty incident response plan for a government or non-government organization.

2. To research, adapt and complete an appropriate hazard vulnerability analysis of risks facing a government or non-government organization.

3. To research necessary staff, stuff and structures already possessed by response agencies and to learn how to acquire or contract the remaining staff, stuff and structures to meet the demand of a mass casualty incident.

4. To collaborate with relevant constituents to research, create and implement effective and efficient exercises that stress the mass casualty incident response plan with critical review to then implement appropriate process and system improvement.
