Snapshot: Mock disaster helps St. Vincent stay prepared


St. Vincent employees and local emergency responders conducted a mock disaster drill Oct. 31 at St. Vincent Hospitals in Carmel, Fishers and Indianapolis. The drill aims to test the preparedness and response of hospital medical staff and local responders should a real crisis occur. The event was staged by St. Vincent’s Emergency Management Sub-Committee in partnership with Indiana Hospital District 5 Preparedness Committee. At least 20 St. Vincent associates played the roles of patients and family members in addition to local police officers, firefighters and other community organizations who participated in the event. The scenario involved individuals who had been injured in an earthquake. (Photos by Ann Marie Shambaugh)
