He and over 40 Criminal Justice students from the MACTC, assisted members of the Red Cross, Norton Shores Fire Department, Michigan Volunteer Defense Force, Muskegon Citizens Corp, Muskegon County Emergency Services, Western Michigan University Forensic Anthropology Response Unit, and other first-responders in the mass casualty incident training.
