GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) -- The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville holds its annual community emergency response training on Friday, August 23.

The training is meant to simulate a mass casualty event, including the presence of approximately 150 of “victims” to be treated by emergency response personnel.

The training tests the readiness of local emergency respondents, including police, fire and EMS, to respond to an event of this magnitude. The training also serves as an exam for first-year medical students studying to become emergency medical technicians.
