Red Cross Mass Casualty Certificates Awarded to ECPI Students and Faculty

Several ECPI University students in Virginia Beach completed the Red Cross Mass Casualty Certification Training on August 19. Disaster response training courses are open to the public but are designed primarily for those individuals wishing to begin or continue training for the local Disaster Action Team (DAT) or the National Disaster Services Human Resources (DSHR) System. The purpose is to provide information about ways participants can help their community prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters. The Mass Casualty Disaster course is designed to prepare employees and volunteers to plan for and respond to mass casualty disasters.

Nine students from Homeland Security, three students studying criminal justice and two faculty members received the certification.
