MOUNT VERNON – In mass casualty events such as acts of violence, the initial responders can be faced with numerous priorities ranging from neutralizing or stopping further violence, managing an evacuation, providing directions and information to responding units and addressing the volume of injured victims.
On Tuesday morning, Director of Knox County Emergency Management Agency, Mark Maxwell, presented local law enforcement officials with new Public Safety Drop Kits in the preparedness measures for the citizens in Knox County.
“This is part of a Central Ohio measure that enhances our readiness in emergency situations,” Maxwell said. “These kits continue to build on the plans, training, and exercises that Knox County first responders have been implementing over the past couple of years. Without a doubt, we’re much better prepared to protect and serve our community.”
