Decisive, Disciplined and Under Fire: A First Responder’s Experiences from the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival Mass Shooting – (Keynote)

Decisive, Disciplined and Under Fire: A First Responder’s Experiences from the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest Festival Mass Shooting – (Keynote)

January 25, 2019
8:15 AM  -  9:45 AM
Main Dining Hall

Description: When first responders arrive for work everyday, especially EMTs and Paramedics, there is an expectation that very ill or injured people will call for their help, their care, medical treatments and transport to a hospital. What they don’t expect is to see hundreds of very injured or dying people all at once. This presentation offers sound counsel for mass gathering crowd safety and medic safety when hundreds are wounded or killed within minutes as experienced during the Las Vegas shooting. Glen Simpson, AEMT and special event director at Community Ambulance in Las Vegas, will share his story, on-scene experiences and his lessons learned about being decisive, direct and disciplined in putting the practice of ICS in motion when even he was personally under fire.
