Overview

The ALERRT Conference will bring together the team that works side-by-side in a mass casualty incident (MCI).  This four-day learning event will have representatives from medical, fire, and police to discuss and implement improvements for responses to emergency events.

In addition to educational tracks for police, fire and EMS, a distinct physician conference track will be offered. It will address the physiology and resuscitation of hemorrhagic shock, the historical background of whole blood, its advantages over a 1:1:1 resuscitation strategy as well as the challenges of implementing a whole blood program.

Speakers will discuss how organizations can create systems capable of adaptive learning during periods of chaos and complexity using examples from the Dallas Ebola experience as well as the Las Vegas shooting. Finally, speakers will examine current civilian Mass Casualty Incident (MCI) response models to assess where opportunities for improvement may exist.
