Annual Mock Trauma Event held April 20

HCC paramedic students working with practice patient

Hagerstown Community College will conduct its annual Criminal Response Emergency Assessment Scenario (CREAS) training event on Sat., April 20, beginning at 8:30 a.m., on HCC’s main campus.

CREAS is an interdisciplinary assessment activity intended for students who are nearing program completion and are ready to graduate. During this mock training scenario, students from the paramedic emergency services, medical imaging, administration of justice, and nursing programs will work together to practice the skills they’ve learned to simulate a variety of incidents similar to what they would normally encounter in the field.

Nursing and health sciences students will have an urgent care, a mock emergency room and trauma unit set up in the Career Programs Building through which they will treat a variety of other students posing as patients. A helicopter will be brought in with a manikin patient and additional manikin patients will be used to simulate more advanced traumas. HCC faculty will oversee all portions of the event. Please note that this event is not open to the public.
