Disaster drill trains emergency medical workers

Mayhem broke out at the Wisconsin Center, and there was blood everywhere.

Not the real stuff, fortunately, and it was for a good cause. Volunteers from the UWM School of Nursing played the victims in an exercise for emergency medical responders during a Wisconsin EMS Association conference. The exercise simulated a mass shooting.

Makeup artists created realistic-looking wounds and gore. College of Nursing students, faculty and staff acted as if they were wounded, screaming and moaning to make the drill more realistic.
