The MERT members’ performance at the Mass Casualty Incident drill was a huge achievement! They triaged, treated, and transported patients which were dispersed over three floors in the Singh Center for Nanotechnology. This was their most effective response to date.

Some of the patients and observers included members of Fire and Emergency Services, Facilities, Department of Emergency Medicine, Penn Police Officers, Penn Facilities and Real Estate Services, Temple University EMS, School of Engineering, the Medical Reserve Corps, and MERT alumni.
