Three Rivers hosts mass casualty training

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

There will be a large police, firefighter and emergency team presence on the campus of Three Rivers Community College on Tuesday but, don't be alarmed, it's only a drill.

The school will be hosting its bi-annual mass casualty training event at the Nursing and Allied Health building on Pine Street in Poplar Bluff.

Students from several fields of study, including the nursing, EMT and paramedic programs, will be part of the training.

Those students will also be getting support from local law enforcement and emergency crews.

According to the school, one of the main focuses of the training is realism.

In keeping with that, the type of disaster and time of training is not being released in order for students to have little chance to prepare beforehand.
