School of Medicine Greenville


EMT Disaster Drill

Friday, August 25, 2017
9 a.m. to 6 p.m.


On Friday, August 25, 2017, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., USC School of Medicine Greenville students will participate in an EMT training exercise, which tests the readiness of local emergency responders through realistic simulations of life-threatening events and is a culmination of the students' training. The drills, made possible by a grant from The Fluor Foundation, bring together law enforcement, fire and rescue, emergency medical services, hospital staff and medical students as they work together to assist patients and protect the community. The drill will potentially include simulations of the following:

  • Explosions
  • Gunshots
  • Wounded and deceased victims
  • Smoke
  • Fire
  • Theatrical blood

If you live near the Grove Road campus of Greenville Health System (GHS) or will be a patient and/or visitor at GHS' Greenville Memorial Hospital that day, please do not be alarmed. All events are a simulation and are under the supervision of the medical school faculty, local law enforcement and EMTs.
