FEMA Training
Some 54 senior students from the Piedmont College R.H. Daniel School of Nursing recently took part in an intense two-day emergency response training session at the Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) in Anniston, Alabama, operated by the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency. The students, from both the Demorest and Athens campuses, along with Dr. Julia Behr, dean of the School of Nursing, and nursing professor Karen Greilich, graduated from the CDP’s Healthcare Emergency Response Operations (HERO) and Emergency Medical Response Awareness (EMRA) courses. Both courses train responders in how to react to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive disaster scenarios.

The training includes classroom and simulation exercises in which participants complete various nursing skills such as wound care, injections, and starting IV’s while wearing level C personal protection gear; including respirators. Students learned the importance of proper procedure for mass-causality triage, setting up field stations, and decontamination. [2017 PHOTOS]
