Training for the worst: Tech Center students engage in mock disaster response
It was the worst-case scenario: Not one but two explosions go off during a performance at the Frauenthal Theater in Downtown Muskegon. A mock disaster drill, which included 82 Criminal Justice and Health Science Academy students from the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center (MACTC), was organized by the Muskegon Citizen’s Corps and the Region 6 Healthcare Coalition to prepare first responders from around the area in the case of an actual emergency. Student participants, training for careers in related fields, got to experience first-hand what actual first-responders undergo in emergency situations.
