Why haven't I seen more MCI training events?

    Am I the only one who is getting a little annoyed due to the dearth of MCI training events/classes/seminars?


    Maybe I'm just not seeing postings for classes, seminars, reviews and they are actually happening. Or maybe it's just my geographical area/service. Given the world we live in, it seems really silly that this hasn't become a common & frequent topic at training events/CEU classes.


    Obviously, it'd be training that I'd hope I'd never have to use, but I'd really appreciate more training & clearer protocols for MCIs.

    And, if you've been lucky enough to get further training on MCIs & triage & whatnot, wanna share some knowledge?

    We have MCI related classes basically monthly in NJ, multiple ones run though the Federal agencies. exercises are hard to set up due to the manpower needed, but i our airports run at least one every year. Just need to look around

    Additionally, every airport with commercial passenger service must host an MCI drill every 2 or 3 years.

    Why not partner with your local agencies and host one?
