Aug. 10 University emergency preparedness drill to include UNC Hospitals

As part of the University’s effort to enhance safety on campus, an emergency preparedness drill will be conducted by the University’s Department of Public Safety on Monday morning, Aug. 10, near Municipal Drive and the main Carolina North Forest. The simulation will include the use of the Emergency Department (ED) at UNC Hospitals.

Several undergraduate volunteers will serve as ‘patients’ in the ED that morning, but will not interfere with patient care. Campus sirens will not be sounded during this drill. Please use this as an opportunity to discuss with your team how a sudden influx of a patients would impact your area, and read additional information regarding this drill here.
