If you didn’t get to play a “victim” at our disaster drill yesterday (we pretended the park was hit by a tornado), you can still take a look by watching this story on WFIE-TV’s website.
Please note that some of the victims are rather gory, so parents might want to view the footage before allowing young children to watch.
Many thanks go out to all those who helped make our drill such a success. We had about 60 wonderful volunteers, our full-time staff, plus more than 100 rescuers from the following agencies: Carter Township Fire, Dale Police, Dubois County EMS, St. Meinrad Fire, Santa Claus Police, Santa Claus Fire, Spencer County Dispatch, Spencer County EMA, Spencer County EMS, Spencer County Sheriff, Life Flight from St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville.
Oh, and the fellow up in the tree? Our own Safety Craig:
The magnificent crew from St. Meinrad took excellent care of Craig. He’s back on the job today.
And poor Dee Ann … you might recognize her from our Front Gate. The way she has her head turned in the interview, you can’t see the awful-looking head wound. Before the drill began, as they were applying her victim’s make-up, Dee Ann searched in her pocket and pulled out a tube of lipstick.
“Guess I won’t be needing this!”
