This is a Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment (START) exercise. It's purpose is to have you quickly assess and assign each victim an assessment. You should be familiar with the process if you have already reviewed Unit 3 in your CERT Basic Training Guide.
It is Saturday, June 15th at 4pm. A major earthquake strikes on the Hayward Fault. After checking that your own house and family are okay, you join up with your CERT team and begin evaluating the damage in the neighborhood. You come across a large apartment building that has sustained moderate damage. The scene is chaotic but you begin to size-up the scene and start triage. After conducting a verbal triage, you continue with triage.
Begin triaging the remaining patients using START triage principles. Identify the category of the patients (RED, YELLOW, GREEN and BLACK) and what treatment you might render according to START (opening of airways, application of direct pressure for bleeding, and treat for shock). Select an answer for each patient. Respiration rates in these scenarios are for 60 seconds.
You'll begin triaging on the next page.
This concludes the START trainer. The original scenario files were credited to Dreyer's & Edy's.
