Managing Active Shooter Patients

active shooter police swatIn this episode, the Disaster Podcast team gets together to discuss the triaging and management of patients in an active shooter situation. Part of the discussion turns to the recent attack with a bow and arrow in Norway that killed five people.

Dr. Joe Holley shares his knowledge and experience based on the situations he’s encountered in recent weeks in Memphis. He talks about the science and data available around rapid transport vs triage and treatment on the scene.

Also on the show are our Meteorologists, Kyle Nelson and Dan DePodwin, along with disaster emergency management expert Becky DePodwin. As always, the show is hosted by Sam Bradely and Jamie Davis.
