Mock Disaster Drill Helps JVS Students Earn First Aid Certification

November 23, 2014 -- The JVS Plumbing and Pipefitting lab looked like a very scary place recently, but luckily it was just the setting for a mock disaster drill for the Allied Health Science students with the plumbing students doing a very realistic job of being the patients.
During the drill the students had to use their first aid and safety skills to treat the patients who were affected with the "#Virus", acting as the first responders. "With so much media attention on the Ebola virus, we thought that would be a very appropriate "disaster" for this bi-annual training exercise," stated AHS instructor Holly Sofia.
Students were observed and graded by EMT Paramedic students from WIN-the Workforce Innovation Network, and paramedics from Southern Lorain County Ambulance Service.
This exercise was the students' final assessment for their safety and first aid certification. Students who earned the certification will also receive two college credits for the coursework take at the JVS.
"This activity is a great way for our students to apply the skills they have been taught in the lab in a more realistic setting," commented Allied Health Science instructor Holly Sofia. "Even though the day's activities were a drill, the students saw the important implications of being prepared for a major event."
