Active Shooter Training to Take Place in Milwaukee

Emergency responders from across Wisconsin and Northern Illinois will face an active shooter situation on Wednesday, January 27, during the first day of sessions at the 30th Working Together Conference & Exposition held by Wisconsin EMS Association.

First Responders, EMTs, firefighters and other emergency responders are being called to situations involving an active assailant with alarming frequency. During this hands-on, scenario-based simulation, 125 participants will learn how to respond to these incidents through actual experience.

The “Rescue Task Force” session will take place from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM inside a specially marked area of the Wisconsin Center. Students will use simulated weapons and will manage patients that are moulaged with realistic looking wounds and injuries. This simulation allows the participants to prepare for actual events.

Also on Wednesday, a morning session on “Mastery of Moulage” will train participants in creating, storing and reusing three-dimensional wounds that can be triaged and sutured for use in training scenarios.

WEMSA’s 30th annual Working Together Conference will host nearly 2,500 participants over six total days, with 70 sessions presented along with more than 140 companies exhibiting in the expo hall.
