What do you want to learn about mass violence response efforts?

Submit a question for the EMS1 editorial team to answer in a future article

The EMS1 special coverage series, “Mass violence: How lessons identified inform training, response,” contains lessons from past incidents that can direct EMS involvement in pre-planning mass gatherings, improve multi-agency cooperation, and inform incident command and response strategies on the ground.

When we surveyed EMS1 members about their training, just 42% felt they had been adequately trained to respond to an incident of mass violence.

As you consider your own training, and your department’s unique capabilities, staffing and equipment, what do you want to know about how to respond to mass violence?

Fill out this short form to submit a question, and your question might be answered by one of our dozens of EMS leaders in an upcoming article or newsletter.
