Invitation to Participate in Mass Casualty Incident Simulation!
There will be two simulations held on Thursday, November 26th (see below) in Chilliwack at the JIBC Campus; one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. We have room for 2 residents and 2 medical students in clinical roles per session. Note that other participants will predominantly be students as well… fire, paramedics, nursing students, etc.
In addition, if there is interest, learners may also participate in operational, mock patient, and other support roles if the clinical spots are filled. Preference will go to senior students and residents for the clinical roles, as more junior learners will have future opportunities.
Contact Jesse or Alyshia or Adam (see below) to express your interest and confirmation of availability. Please only reply if you can be available on that date in Chilliwack. Car-pooling can almost certainly be arranged.
RSVP’s accepted until Wednesday, November 4th at 17:00. Confirmation of attendance and role will be shared by the end of the business day on Monday, November 9th.

The Justice Institute of British Columbia and BC’s Mobile Medical Unit (MMU – http://www.bcmmu.ca) invite you to the third annual 2015 Multi-Agency Simulation Event, being held on November 26, 2015.
This unique event brings together students and professionals in various fields including ambulance, police, fire services, nursing, residents, Canadian Armed Forces and search and rescue to simulate large-scale disaster response and emergencies. Focusing on inter-professional teamwork and collaboration, this health education training simulation will be held at the JIBC Chilliwack campus.
British Columbia’s Mobile Medical Unit, a state-of-the-art mobile hospital that deploys across the province in response to disasters and to support renovations, will serve as the platform for hospital care. The unit’s specialized team of clinicians and educators will also be leading the simulations. Each participating profession will have their own set of simulations that relate directly to their professional roles as well as contribute to the event’s overall objectives.
These events help to best prepare our allied health and emergency providers while offering a unique opportunity to showcase how various professions bring their strengths together to address a multitude of real-life scenarios.
When: November 26, 2015
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Where: JIBC – Chilliwack Campus – 5470 Dieppe St. Chilliwack, BC
We are looking for a variety of agencies and personnel to participate in this simulation event and contribute to this shared learning opportunity. Roles include both participating in the simulations and leading specific components of the simulations that relate to your area of expertise.
