A huge thank you to our library volunteers without whom our !ibrary would not be open and available for student use. It takes a whole village to educate our children - you make a difference and we appreciate you! @ Dear Editor, I would like to say thank you to all who have been so much help to me @ Dear Editor, The Council Elementary School would like to thank the Record for donating a subscription for this past school year. The students used it to learn information about our community and to develop their vocabulary. Also, the articles about the students were dipped and hung on a bulletin board to help them remember their ing lives. Last year, in one 24-hour period, 638 victims of domestic violence and their children across Idaho received life-saving ser- vices from local domestic violence organizations - an increase of almost 100 vic- tims from the previous year. Tragically, we still have much work to do as last both Senator Crapo and Representative Simpson voting in favor of the Violence Against Women. Kelly M;llr Miller is the Executive Director, Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence Realistic drill was good training Dear Editor, I took part in an inter- esting training exercise last week. McCall Fire Rescue and EMS, Valley County Sheriffs Department, McCall Police Department, McCall Hospital and McCall-Donnelly High School were geared up on Wednesday, preparing for a mass casualty drill. It was The Valley County Active Shooter Full Scale Exercise, conducted at the McCall - Donnelly High School in McCall. It began with a safety briefing, followed by "actor/ victim" moulaging. All law enforcement weapons were checked in and cleared of any ammo, and the tips of the barrels and handgrips were visibly marked with red tape. All exercise transmissions on the radios began and ended with the statement "EXERCISE TRAFFIC". Had there been an actu- al emergency, the trans- missmn would have been "THIS IS A REAL-WORLD EMERGENCY," and the exercise play would have ceased immediately. The purpose of the exercise was to evalu- ate the players abilities for response to an active shooter incident, focusing on emergency responder command and control coordination, on scene tri- age, critical decisions, and the integration of hospital, city, county and state assets necessary to save lives and protect public health and safety. The triage and pre-hospi- tat treatment demonstrated the coordination with on scene Incident Command and Hospital personnel to respond to an influx of family and friends with a hospital lockdown. As the drill began, an active shooter incident with multiple injuries at McCall High School was "reported" to Valley County Dispatch. Law Enforcement was dispatched first to secure the incident scene. Fire and EMS was paged out to the staging area, waiting for the incident scene to become safe for the rescuers. I was on the first ambu- lance, along with a para- medic. When we arrived at the school, students were being brought out of the building. They were screaming and crying, and we had to triage them and take the most criti- cal patient to the hospital first. At the hospital, fam- ily members were running towards their child and cry- ing, making it difficult for Us to do our job. We gave a report to the hospital staff and returned to the high school for more injured students. The moulage looked real, and the actors were great. It lasted about an hour, and everyone worked well together. After the exercise, there was a "hot- wash" -- a participant infor- mation and feedback ses- sion, which was recorded in an '[After Action Report/ Improvement Plan" to assist the county and participat- ing agencies in improving their response methods and capabilities. It was a good experience for one to become confi- dent if such an incident should occur. Cozo_; / Elkhorn B&B 1327 Hwy 95, Mesa 208-741-2071 Set your "GOAT ON"!
