We have recently tested the emergency response plan at a client site.
Using a dummy, we staged an incident then observed as the team successfully delivered casualty care and executed a casualty extraction. It gave us an opportunity to test our covid-19 procedures in an emergency situation.
The team tested raising the alarm, deployment of a stretcher and neck collar and evacuation of the casualty from a pit using a hoist.
Well done to everyone involved. Refreshing these skills will ensure we are prepared and able to respond appropriately should a real-life emergency occur.
