“Casualties” makes people thing of “dead” – so unless you have lots of deceased, you have a multiple patient scene.
Many kudos to those who ran this call – very well handled.

Just don’t get a bunch of you guys in the same room, discussing the factors and phenomenons of such multi-patient events. Otherwise, you might end up with… wait for it… a mass causality incident.

‘Casualty’ is a word I had to use in the second language I learned in the Army. I was to use an M16A2, M67s, and an M9 to inflict casualties (amongst the enemy).

Skip is this name change a county thing or something you all got somewhere? This is the first I had heard of them not being called a mass casualty incident

Nothing official – just a trend …

And this wasn’t so much anything as a “multii-want-to-be-checked-out”!
