Mass Casualty Drill In Waupun Today

Officials in Waupun will be preparing for the worst by running a mass casualty drill today. It is a collaborative effort involving City Police and Fire Departments, Waupun Memorial Hospital, Lifestar EMS and Flight for Life. Fire Chief B.J. DeMaa says there will be two parts to it. A tabletop exercise is from 2 to 4:30 p.m. and following that there is a live event out in the field beginning at 6:30 p.m. This mass casualty scenario involves a simulated bus crash, but DeMaa says they are aware that real life mass casualty incidents have occurred involving active shooters as well, such as the recent Las Vegas shootings. He says you always hope it doesn’t happen here, but the reality is they are happening and you need to be prepared.
