Milwaukee Regional Medical Center campus holds mass casualty drill

NOW: Milwaukee Regional Medical Center campus holds mass casualty drill

NEXT:

WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee Regional Medical Center along with local police and fire departments, held a mass casualty drill on Thursday.

Dozens of first responders took part in the exercise to practice what they would do during a public health or safety incident.

At the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health building, authorities responded to a mock school shooting. The victims were spread out suffering from different injuries, making the situation seem as real as possible.

Part of the drill's purpose was to practice communication, which organizers say went well.

“We really wanted to highlight the fact that we’re doing these things, we’re training,” Wauwatosa Police Capt. Brian Zalewski said. “Our officers, firefighters, medical staff are really the best prepared that they can be for a large scale incident, should it occur.”

Drills also took place at other locations on the MRMC campus including the hospitals.
