#GMVEMSC: Quarterly Triage Day Drill - February 5th - 6th

As announced in multiple regional meetings, the region’s next Quarterly Triage Day (QTD) Drill will begin Tuesday, February 5th at 8:00 PM (2000 Hours), and continue until 8 PM (2000 Hours) the next day, February 6th.

·         Hospitals will monitor MCI radios from 8:00 pm to Midnight (2000-2400) on the first day and from 8 AM to Noon (0800-1200) the next day.  EMS crews transporting patients to a hospital during these times should provide a brief message to the hospital via the MCI radio talk groups.

During this exercise every patient should receive a triage ribbon and a GREEN triage tag.  Hospitals will update their GDAHA Surgenet MCI page at least once every 8 hours, and practice entering patients into the OhTrac incident, which will be created by GDAHA for the drill.

There is more information in the attachments, including an MCI Communications Drill Job Aid, and a QTD flyer.  PLEASE POST THE FLYERS and help us get the word out to all line personnel, both in EMS and in EDs.

We have also slightly updated the training materials.  Go to http://gmvemsc.org/training-mcicomm.html, watch the video (the top video is for EMS, bottom video is for hospital personnel), then, regardless of which you watch, take the quiz at the bottom of the page to receive 1.5 Hours of Con Ed.

If you need additional GREEN triage tags or triage ribbons, contact GDAHA or Dayton MMRS. 

At the conclusion of your shift or the end of the drill, please take a couple of minutes to complete a feedback form at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QTDFeb2019 or by scanning


Thank you for participating in QTD drills to help our region be better prepared for mass casualty incidents of all types.

#GMVEMSC: FW: Grandview Snow Emergency Medic Entrance

Good Afternoon!


Due to the inclement weather expected tomorrow (Saturday 01/19/2019), Grandview Medical Center is making arrangements to allow your medic crews to use the new canopy instead of the temporary tent entrance they have used for so many months.  The new addition is not finished on the inside yet (we’re really close though!) so none of the new interior area will be accessible.  The crews will be able to park under the new canopy, unload and come in thru the new glass vestibule.  Once inside they will turn left and this will lead them directly to the nurses station they are used to seeing.  Again this is only for temporary use during the snow this weekend, and is not yet being opened for permanent use.  The hours we will be using this entrance are listed below, along with an outline of all the instructions listed here.  Crews will be unable to exit onto Neil Ave., there is no concrete poured to allow this to be done yet.  They will need to loop the middle column and exit the same way they entered.  Attached is a map showing traffic flow into and exiting the area as well as where to enter the building and where to go once inside.  If you have any questions about any of these, please feel free to call me at 937-467-8295, I should be available all weekend.


•             Ambulance Canopy Usage Hours

Begins Saturday 01/19/2019 at 0600

Ends Sunday 01/20/2019 at 1800

•             Enter the Ambulance drive as normally done

•             Park and Unload under the NEW canopy

•             Enter the building thru the new glass sliding vestibule doors

•             Once inside turn LEFT and continue thru to the staffed Nurse’s station you normally go to

•             Exit the canopy the same way you entered, you will need to loop the column.


•             The new EMS room is NOT ACCESSIBLE yet, continue to use the original EMS room
