PLEASE KNOW! Mass Casualty Exercise at Montgomery College, April 25

The first annual health science mass casualty event will be on Saturday morning, April 25 (0700 - 1200) on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. Over 100 students from our radiology, sonography, surgical tech and nursing programs will collaborate with area emergency medical/management teams and many other volunteers to care for victims of a simulated earthquake. The event will take place in and around the Health Science building (at 7977 Georgia Avenue), and Cafritz building underground garage (on King Street).  Ambulances from Silver Spring, Wheaton, and Rockville will also participate and will be at the back of the Silver Spring campus and use Jesup Blair Drive and King Street for access to the building. Please share this information with your networks so all will know and no one will be alarmed.
