The First Five Minutes: Initiating Operations at a Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) provides an introduction to the steps to take during those vital “first five minutes” of an incident involving multiple patients.  The course will review what constitutes an MCI, utilizing the incident command system (ICS), roles and responsibilities of the incident commander and triage group, lessons learned from past MCI events, and will provide practice patients to conduct triage assessments on.  There will also be a final scenario as an opportunity to practice decision making as the first arriving apparatus to an MCI.  This course is being delivered 100% online.  Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of completion which will satisfy the WVOEMS requirement for two hours of MCI refresher training.  To register for this class, please email, and additional information for logging in to the course via Blackboard Coursesites will be sent to you.  The course is able to be started immediately, and students do not need to wait until June 30 to register, as that date is only listed to ensure the event remains posted on our calendar.  Please contact the WVPST Clarksburg office at 304-326-7581, or email with any questions regarding the course.
