Cornell EMS Ramps Up Disaster Preparedness with New Addition
Cornell EMS puts Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) Trailer into Service with generous assistance from Cornell University’s Department of Risk Management. The MCI Unit is just one of many steps that CUEMS has taken to improve its preparation should a large scale disaster come to Cornell University. The trailer is filled with equipment which among many other things, will allow CUEMS Personnel the ability to provide care to over 100 patients, provide spinal immobilization to 50 pts, simultaneously administer Oxygen to 20 patients, organize EMS Incident Command and ensure organization between CUEMS providers. The Trailer has the most amount of emergency medical supplies in all of Tompkins County and is one of very few like it in the larger surrounding area.
