Minot's Fire Department is working with Trinity Sports Medicine among other emergency responders to construct a way the city can handle a mass casualty event, especially through sports medicine.
Often the police or fire departments responding to the call don't know Trinity's physicians are already at the sporting event.
To help clarify each party's link of communication and increase response time, they met at the Fire Administration building to discuss future plans.
(Robyn Gust, Trinity Sports Medicine) "What we are doing here today, and this has come about through meeting with community ambulance, with fire and rescue, with dispatch, with all the emergency responders in Ward County, that we are trying to bridge that gap on wasted time. Between the time that that person is injured, or multiple people with mass casualty and the time that they are on their way to the hospital."
