During an Aquatics and Recreation Center (ARC) training a live exercise for campus recreation employees involving both Hamilton County and UTC first responders will take place.
Scheduled on Friday, January the 10th taking place in between 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm a scenario will test campus rec staff while the building is closed to the public. This comprehensive scenario will allow both students and staff to see first hand what a live coordination between County Emergency Medical Services with our Police Department plus Safety and Risk Management office.
For the first time surrounding responders will help students see firsthand what to expect and create a more powerful learning experience. The specific details of the simulated response will be presented day of to the rec staff; however, University and the City will be involved in arriving on the scene to collaborate just like an actual emergency. One of the key components of the ARC staff regular training’s is running scenarios, so each student can have a more in depth understanding of how emergencies play out and what their subsequent role is during an emergency.
