On April 5th, Unitek Education staged Operation Urban Rescue, one of the largest multi-agency, mass-casualty training simulations ever held in the Bay Area. Our Mass Casualty Training exercises were developed to bridge the gap between government agencies and civilian responders while educating medical students.

SCENARIO BACKGROUND

Operation Urban Rescue is a large-scale military and civilian response to a fictional catastrophe in Fremont, California. Participants will respond to an armed insurgent threat, improvised explosive devices, hazardous materials, and critical medical conditions. Emergency medical services will need to assess the scenario, respond to immediate medical emergencies, and coordinate with other agencies to secure the disaster scene and render care. We are honored to have Congressman Mike Honda attend Operation Urban Rescue.
