Students Get Real Life Experience in Disaster Drill

CEC partners with the Albuquerque Fire Department for emergency exercise.

Students from the Career Enrichment Center got hands on experience in a mock disaster drill this week.  It was all to teach CEC Emergency Medical Services students and paramedic cadets from the Albuquerque Fire Department how to deal with a disaster. 

CEC cosmetology students used theatrical make-up to simulate injuries on the victims for the drill.  The cadets then triaged the patients, sending some to hospitals by ambulance and even air lifting one by helicopter. 

This is the second year that the Career Enrichment Center and the Albuquerque Fire Department have partnered on this exercise.
