On Saturday, May 20, 2017 The Morris County Office of Emergency Management hosted the first Trauma First Response (TFR) training for Morris County school staff. We were fortunate to have representatives from the Morris County School of Technology, Randolph High School (Randolph Schools), Hillcrest School (Morris School District), and Flocktown-Kossmann Elementary School (Long Valley). TFR is an 8-hour course designed to introduce concepts that allow non-EMS practitioners to render aid while awaiting the arrival of first responders. The attendees participated in both classroom and practical scenarios which allowed them to apply the concepts they learned throughout the day long training program. Thank you to our partners at Techline Trauma and all those who attended this great program which is designed to save lives! ... See MoreSee Less

.The Morris County Office of Emergency Management participated in the Gotham Shield Exercise for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) which is currently on-going at the MetLife Stadium in Rutherford, NJ. The Gotham Shield is a FEMA functional exercise involving federal, state, county and local jurisdictions including New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. The exercise that we are participating in today involved an Improvised Nuclear Device (IND) detonation which occurred in the NJ/NY metropolitan area. The purpose of the exercise was to evaluate the entire response effort for an IND attack. Our challenge today, involved arriving at MetLife Stadium where thousands of people were assembled and in need of care. Our mission was to assess, treat, and evacuate casualties to hospitals and facilities away from the impact site. The training exercise did not involve any “real” patients. However, we were challenged to exercise our plans, procedures, and equipment to simulate our actions throughout the expanded scenario.

The Morris County Office of Emergency Management along with our partners from the Morris County Park Police Department, responded to the MetLife stadium complex with our Mobile Ambulance Bus (MAB) which is capable of treating/transporting large numbers of injured individuals or serving as part of a larger triage system to assess patients prior to being prioritized for transportation by other EMS assets to an appropriate medical facility. Today’s large scale exercise focused on multiple emergency response agencies coming together from multiple states for the purpose of drilling logistics and equipment resources, while working with each other within the framework of a large scale mass casualty event. In Morris County, we plan for the worst and hope for the best. We pride ourselves on our capability to respond to the worst case scenario, and today’s exercise provided a framework for dealing with the type of event we hope we never experience.
