Effective management of school emergencies where there are mass casualties requires careful planning, preparation, and training to maximize effectiveness under less than optimal conditions.

  1. Describe the importance of preventative training for disaster planning, organizing, training, equipping, exercising and evaluating and taking corrective action prior to a school Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) event.
  2. Lists skills and characteristics a school nurse would need to be an effective leader in mass casualty response in schools.
