This lecture will focus on all areas which EMS will be involved in when it comes to MCI and acts of terrorism. We will look at EMS role in the incident command process and being part of the unified command, how these incidents effect provider mental health, and the triage process. Objectives Students will know when an incident command structure will need to be utilized for an event. Students will be able to describe sections of the incident command structure and the role they play. Students will know issues relating to the response of Acts of Terrorism. Students will have a better understanding on how responding to MCI events effects provider mental health. Students will know the different types of triage systems that exist. Students will be able to utilize the SMART triage system to determine patient acuity. Lecturer: Mr. Adam Culbertson, MS
