On October 5, 2016, Aetna, in partnership with Singerly Fire Company and the University of Delaware Emergency Care Unit, held a full-scale mass casualty incident (MCI) drill at Goodchild’s Towing. Arriving crews were met with a simulated multi-vehicle collision with 11 patients; several were trapped and one was pinned under a vehicle. In real time, crews had to perform triage, stabilize, extricate and treat patients. The drill provided the opportunity to train in a realistic environment in order to better prepare for future responses.
