Leveraging Volunteers During Emergent Events
Professional responders who are first to arrive at a mass casualty incident (MCI) face a complex and potentially overwhelming challenge. It’s possible the first to arrive may be an inexperienced responder who will have to make decisions quickly and may lack mental models to help drive their behaviors. Even in a well-coordinated response, the professional responders may not be able to treat all the injured at the same time, and so they must triage and prioritize the victims. Spontaneous volunteers often heroically step in to fill the gap without being asked, but their courage and commitment often adds complexity to an...
