We are having a HUGE mock incident that will involve hundreds of people and 1 or 2 dozen agencies from all over the area. There is a rumor that it will be a school shooting that we will be responding to. As EMS, we are given no body armor (even though some of the stations around us have them) and aren't supposed to carry firearms. No law against it, but being that it would be a response to a school, there IS a specific prohibition about carry guns on any school property. Now our rigs are normally pretty safe, but a well placed sniper could take us out anywhere within eye-sight of the scene. Normally we wait until law enforcement has secured the scene to enter and stage in a safe location, however, with a mass shooting, no one can ever say that the scene is safe and someone won't be waiting in a bush/closet/crowd. I'm wondering what your thoughts are and how you have/would deal with the situation to protect yourself, your crew, as well as help the victims. Thanks! -Emt1581 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
