Sam Bradley rounded up a special guest to discuss the topic, paramedic and educator Mike Marsh who assumed medical command during the MCI at the Asiana Air 777 crash at San Francisco International Airport (SFO) on July 6, 2014. Mike relates his experience during the event and how the preplanning and training on MCIs between the fire and Ems response agencies in and around SFO helped the incident run much more smoothly.
