Mass casualty training for prehospital and emergency providers in Kigali, Rwanda
Rwanda experiences a combination of both natural and man-made disasters. However, there has been little training to help the medical system prepare and address these disasters. The goal of this training is to teach skills critical to responding to mass casualty incidents (MCI) to first responders, prehospital providers and hospital personnel. The course will be taught to members of Healthy Persons Rwanda, SAMU (EMS system) and Rwanda Emergency Care Association (RECA). Members of RECA include paramedics, nursing staff, and physicians that participate in emergency care.
