MCI / Active Shooter Scenario

David Neubert, MD

"911 What is your emergency?"
"Yea... there's... a guy here looking for his wife
he seems pretty angry. And he's acting
suspiciously. Can you send the police?"
"Okay... cars will be en route... could you give
me more information please..."
"Unit 54... Respond to the Calhoun Building.
100 block of Avenue A. For a suspicious person
possible domestic. Unit 55 and Car 4 to assist."
"Unit 54 responding."
"Unit 55 responding."
"Car 4 is en route."
"911 What is your emergency?"
"He has a gun!! He's shooting people!!"
"Ma'am... okay I need you to be calm for me.
Where are you?"
"At the Calhoun Building! He's looking for his
wife! She works on the 3rd floor..."
"Are there any injuries?"
"Units responding to the Calhoun building...
expedite response. Report of possible active
shooter. Suspect is described as male 5'10" tall
red shirt, black ballcap, jeans. Reportedly has
rifle and handguns. Possibly heading towards
a 3rd floor office. Report of multiple people down at the scene."
"Dispatch... Car 4. Have all available units in
the area respond. I'm pulling up now with
Unit 54. Multiple people running from the
"10-4 Lieutenant"
"Dispatch... active shots audible, Unit 55 on
scene and we are entering the building."
"... showing units 50, 56, 57 on scene. Car
4 advises to enter through the lobby -- shooter
has not been located yet."
"Dispatch Car 4."
"Go ahead 4."
"Start EMS, we have at least 10 victims in the
lobby, we have a team heading towards the
3rd floor... and need additional units..."
"County control to Medic 1... respond to assist
the police for shots fired at the Calhoun Bldg.
100 block of Avenue A. Reports of at least 10
victims at this time. Shooter has not been
located yet. Stage in the area. Car 4 has
police command at the scene."

Communications with the police?
How close to the scene should you park?
Additional units at this time?
Other considerations?
"Dispatch Car 4."
"Go ahead Car 4."
"We have injured people that have been
evacuated to the front of the building. Advise
EMS that they can access the parking lot in
front of the building on the Avenue A side, it
has been secured for them."
"County Control to Medic 1. Car 4 is advising
that the parking lot in front of the Calhoun
Building on the Avenue A side has been secured and asks that you respond there. Injured victims are being evacuated outside the building at this time. Shooter is still at large inside the building..."

Unified Command
Lt. Hightower introduces himself with a handshake and explains that his officers are continuing to clear the building. There are injuries in the lobby, but it has not been secured yet. There are reports of other injuries in the building, but he does not know how many.
He directs you to the grassy area by a police SUV and tells you that some of the injured self-evacuated there.

What are the next important steps to take at this point?
Other thoughts or considerations?
There are 10 injured workers in the field where the Lt. has directed you. A few have obvious gunshot wounds and are in various stages of distress. There is also a man clutching at his chest, and a female with a twisted ankle. They are being attended to by bystanders. Two of the patients appear unresponsive. There is a police officer providing security for the workers.

What resources do you need at the CCP right now?

Other thoughts and considerations?
"Unit 54 to Car 4"
"Go ahead 54"
"Lobby has been secured. It is safe for EMS to enter. We have multiple unconscious patients here. Please request that they expedite. Second floor is also clear, no perp and no victims."
New "scene" to access in lobby
From where do you assign resources to the lobby?
What equipment should be taken to the scene?
Do you need to reposition any units?
Other thoughts and considerations?
As you enter the lobby you are directed by a police officer to a number of gravely injured victims. A quick count shows 8 people down. There are a number of people that are unconscious and not moving. One person has a GSW to the chest and is profoundly short of breath. A few people are sobbing in the corner covered in blood. One man is holding his leg with a rapidly expanding pool of blood and a bystander attempting to help. Another police officer yells that he needs help for an injured child. You can hear a mother screaming.

at least 10 critical patients. There are also
many 'walking wounded' ..."
