Heart Pavillion Evacuation Drill
Date: 07.26.2013

Today, members of the company spent the morning at Lankenau Hospital working with hospital officials and members of Narberth Ambulance, Lower Merion Police and various county and state agency representatives in order to affect an evacuation of the new heart pavillion as part of a sponsored drill. The exercise brought together multiple agencies working tirelessly to relocate twenty-nine patients of the new tower to a temporary hospital tent setup by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Special Medical Assistance Response Team due to a simulated failure in building services. Our members performed a variety of tasks including training hospital employees on the use of our stokes basket and reeves stretcher, assisting with the command structure managing the evolution and assiting with evacuating patients. We thank Lankenau for the invite to participate and look forward to other exciting oppotunities.
