Caldwell County REACT members, trained CERT volunteers, participated as victims during a training exercise for the North Catawba Fire and Rescue and the Sheriff’s Office on the evening of March 26 at Baton Elementary School.
Thanks to the talent of Rosemary Hall and her team of moulage artists (special effects make-up), we looked the part of victims of violence. This provided the first responders an opportunity to practice in diagnosing, treating, and moving real people with real-looking wounds. Our REACT members spent 5 hours getting made up and participating as victims.
We were glad to have the opportunity to assist with this important project. We learned a lot and were impressed with the quality of response from the North Catawba Fire and Rescue staff and the Deputy Sheriffs.
