The scenario of a two-bus crash with dozens of patients tested the trauma surge capabilities of St. Anthony’s and five of its EMS partners during a drill on Jan. 28. Employees from various departments across St. Anthony’s came together with the Emergency Department to show tremendous skill, dedication and cooperation to meet the demands of the drill. Crews from Mehlville Fire Protection District, Affton Fire Protection District, Rock Township Ambulance District, Abbott EMS and Gateway Ambulance also joined in the drill. Students from Affton High School, Mehlville High School and Oakville High School did an outstanding job playing the roles of the victims and victims’ relatives.
