Media Alert: Mass Casualty Drill Tonight

Starting at 7:00 this evening, Fort Ellis Fire, Bozeman Fire, Hyalite Fire, AMR, Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff’s Search and Rescue, and Mount Ellis Academy will be running a live training drill on mass casualty events. The training scenario involves a bus carrying students on Bozeman Trail Road east of the Bear Canyon exit. Training includes extricating students and transporting them to the hospital, where Bozeman Health will train on handling a sudden large influx of patients. First responders will be using regular radio channels so anyone listening to a scanner may hear something about the scenario and mistake it for a real event.
