Mass Casualty

Today's complex disasters, especially those involving terrorism and weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, or nuclear) may result in an austere environment. A setting where resources, transportation, and other aspects of the social physical or economical environments impose severe constraints on the availability and adequacy of immediate care for the campus population as needed.

When events occur that cause a major disruption to the campus environment, that event will also impact the surrounding community and emergency services. Local government agencies will be integrated in the preparation and preparedness of the campus for such a situation.
