Recruits Test Skills with Real Life Scenarios

(Grand Island, Neb.)- Members of the Nebraska State Patrol 57th Basic Recruit Class will test their ability to handle serious crashes involving multiple injuries during real life scenario based training.

The training will be held Tuesday, July 26, beginning at 9:00 a.m., and lasting until noon, on the driving course at the Nebraska State Patrol Training Academy, 3600 North Academy Road in Grand Island.

Involving three different crash scenarios, the training will test the recruits’ ability to quickly assess the scene, provide first aid, and make the necessary arrangements to quickly and smoothly take control of a very hectic situation. The recruits will be evaluated in five different areas:

  • Initial response as a primary unit first on the scene and first aid to victims

  • Traffic control as a backup unit-

  • Accident scene photography

  • Crash scene investigation/interviewing

  • Media interview

Fire and rescue personnel from Grand Island, Hastings, Kearney, Hall County and CHI Health Good Samaritan Hospital, will participate in the training, adding a realistic element to the experience of a serious crash scene. Victims in the training exercise will be played by volunteers from Cairo Emergency Management, Cairo Fire Department and EMS Students. ###

***Media is welcome to attend this very visual training exercise, please contact Sgt. Cody Paro upon your arrival at the Training Academy in Grand Island***
