Emergency Medical Drill Conducted at Kids University

Posted: Updated:

First responders with REMSA staged a chemical explosion at the medical school - and then showed kids exactly what they would do in a real situation.

They wanted to make the experience as realistic as possible starting with triage, then treatment then transportation.

"It's important for them to see this, because kids of this age are just starting to think about what they want to do with their careers," says Brian Taylor.

Some of the kids we spoke to say this drill definitely piqued their interest in emergency response.

And Taylor says as an added bonus - doing an event like this gives the first responders some good practice, so if an actual disaster happens, they'll be ready. "That exercise and that training makes us ready for any situation that we might come upon."

This event is part of the week-long "Health Care Heroes" course at Kids University.

The camp wraps up on Friday.
