SCC hosts large scale incident training

Sierra Conservation Center’s (SCC) In-Service training office coordinated with community partners to host a large scale incident training drill.

Those attending included:

  • Custody staff
  • SCC Institutional Fire Department
  • Medical professionals
  • Tuolumne County Ambulance (Manteca District Ambulance)
  • Copperopolis Fire Department
  • California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE)
  • PHI Air Ambulance
  • Office of Emergency Services
  • and Tuolumne County Emergency Medical Services Agency.

Alarm Response instructors from California Health Care Facility (CHCF) and Mule Creek State Prison (MCSP) also assisted during the training. 

The drill involved custody staff ending two riots in separate locations. A simulated structure fire required fire suppression efforts by two fire engine companies. Once the riots were settled, role players simulated injuries so SCC medical professionals and institutional firefighters could assess and treat.

SCC Fire Department personnel and medical staff coordinated transportation of casualties with Tuolumne County Ambulance. This included the transport of casualties to the SCC helicopter pad. Copperopolis Fire Company landed PHI Air Med 42-Sonora air ambulance. 

The training drill lasted two hours and involved 120 people. A post-training review concluded the day, followed by a barbecue lunch prepared by SCC California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA) members.
