Ms. Higgin’s and Mrs. Durkee’s Saint Lucie West Centennial Medical Academy students participated in a mock disaster drill at Tradition Medical Center and Martin Emergency at St. Lucie West. They were requested to participate as victims — all 24 went to Tradition Medical Center first to be “moulaged” by specialized makeup volunteers.
Twelve of the students stayed at Tradition Medical Center in the Emergency Room, the other 12 were transported to Martin Emergency at St. Lucie West. Every student was given a script to memorize. They all did a fantastic job portraying themselves as injured victims; they took it very seriously and had a lot of fun.
After the mock drill was complete, all students were treated to a great pizza lunch at Tradition Medical Center.
