PALM HARBOR – The medical magnet students in Palm Harbor University High’s first responder class know the importance of preparing for unexpected medical emergencies during natural disasters.

That’s why they spent time recently setting the scene and turning their classroom into a mock disaster zone. It was all part of a tornado training exercise to help prepare for when Mother Nature wreaks havoc and emergency aid is needed.

“The students did fabulous,” said Terri Nuyianes, the program’s medical magnet coordinator. “They quickly went into professional mode and they worked well as a team. They were able to get every single freshman out.”

Nuyianes added that the goal of an exercise like this is to practice and to put into motion the skills  learned in the classroom in order to save lives.

The East Lake Community Emergency Response Team, also known as East Lake CERT, provided professional equipment and guidance.

“The medical team did a great job of assessing the patients, going back and re-triaging them and making sure that they were OK,” said Ralph Farmer, an East Lake CERT team member.

According to Farmer, the students successfully demonstrated their first aid knowledge and hopes that the event inspires others to learn more about emergency preparation. East Lake Cert plans to offer more training in the future and they plan to start a teen CERT program.
