Manning was the site for a county-wide emergency simulation of a bus rollover accident on July 19th. Carroll Area Nursing Service had four nurses participate in this exercise - Ann Langel, RN, Janet Ladehoff, RN, Beth Harms, RN, BSN, and Marie Pudenz, RN, BSN.
The drill had approximately 20 kids simulating injuries and required a number of agencies to work together.
The county puts on at least three training sessions a year allowing area agencies to practice working together so they will be better prepared in the event of a disaster. With all the hours our staff spends on the road daily and logging over 300,000 thousands of miles a year, our nurses felt this drill held extra significance for them.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who took the time to participate in this drill to help CANS staff as well as Carroll County Emergency Medical Services, Carroll County Public Health, Manning Regional Healthcare Center, St. Anthony Regional Hospital, Manning Police Dept., and Manning, Manilla and Templeton Fire Departments be better prepared in the event of an actual emergency situation.
