Students took turn as triage coordinators and as first responders. The victims smiled perhaps a bit too much at times and needles and breathing tubes were only simulated. Still, it's another opportunity for Vol State EMS students to practice the skills they have been honing all school year. Many of the students will be taking the tension up a notch or two in May. They'll be participating in a huge Nashville area disaster drill at the Nashville airport. That annual affair often features smoke, whining sirens and the feel of a real disaster. The world of EMS is a career-long learning experience.
