Wednesday afternoon, Millwood FD was invited to participate in a mass casualty incident (MCI) drill run by Sleepy Hollow FD - NY at the former General Motors property. The mock scenario was a charter bus rolled-over onto an SUV with victims inside both vehicles. Members of fire, police and EMS agencies worked together to accomplish their individual goals. Millwood and Sleepy Hollow FD's were tasked with extricating victims from both vehicles. Members of Sleepy Hollow Ambulance Corps., Tarrytown Ambulance, Ossining Volunteer Ambulance Corps, Briarcliff Manor Fire Department EMS initiated patient care and transportation to Phelps Hospital. Police officers from Sleepy Hollow Police Dept, Westchester County Police Department, Tarrytown Police Department, NYC Department of Environmental Protection Police and New York State Police conducted an investigation into the incident. This training exercise allowed all agencies involved to think quickly and adapt to challenges they may face in the real-world. Thanks to Chief Cappello for inviting us to this important drill.
