Walbridge, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Wood and Lucas County first responders were put to the test Wednesday at Owens Community College. They were placed in life or death scenarios as part of a drill, and had to rescue dozens of people.
About 40 cars were piled up with people in desperate need of help. Overturned cars, smoke, and bloodied victims gave the drill a real feel.
‘Pile-up on the Pike' simulated a multi-car crash caused by a tornado, and it tested how first responders from different agencies communicate and care for victims in the midst of chaos.
"It's kind of our way of seeing if what we've taught them is actually sticking and being usable," explained Capt. Bill Montrie, from the Springfield Township Fire Department.
Sylvania students got involved, too. They played the victims.
"It gives the guys a sense of what they're going to do, and you can't do that with a mannequin," Montrie said.
First responders from Wood and Lucas counties listened to the same dispatch. During a massive accident like this, having everyone on the same page is critical.
"You have one crew doing one thing and another crew doing another thing, and if they're not talking you could flood one hospital with a bunch of victims and nobody else has them," Montrie said.
