Emergency Response Training

For the last few years the forestry students have worked with the nursing students at Mont Alto to simulate emergency response to a logging accident. Using the medical training dummy, istan, the students can go train through the whole experience from a downed logger to first aid and transport, to an ER triage, and to transport on Penn State's Life Lion helicopter.

Here is a link to the article in the Chambersburg Public Opinion. This experience makes a great finale to the first aid training required for forest technology students before the forest  harvesting courses of summer camp.
