SVAC Performs Emergency Drill

tecc2Tragedy from gun violence is making headlines daily. Members of the Scarsdale Volunteer Ambulance Corps (SVAC) sought to make sure that should Scarsdale ever be in danger, they were best equipped to handle it. From Friday, June 2nd to Sunday, June 4th, SVAC ran a Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TACC) exercise using a training program from the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT). The program was designed to teach volunteers how to minimize casualties and protect others in an "Active Shooter" situation. Participants in the drill included SVAC volunteers,  volunteer "victims" who had been made-up with moulage to simulate injury, a military policeman, and Sergeant Tim Behrmann. David Raizen, an expert on emergency response said that the event gave him a greater knowledge on how to protect himself in these situations, as well as a different respect for police going into these difficult situations. Below are photographs of the simulation taken by Jon Thaler. You can see more photos here.

Why is it "tragedy from gun violence"? The gun didn't have a say in the matter. Try "tragedy from violence". "Gun violence" is exactly what law enforcement will visit upon an active killer- this is not tragic.
