On Sunday, October 26, DeSales University will hosted a mock emergency event—the aftermath of exposure to a hazardous chemical.

The simulation, set in and outside of the Hurd Science Center at the University’s Center Valley Campus, focused on the triage, treatment, and decontamination of multiple victims of a mock exposure to hydrogen sulfide.

In addition to the DeSales students, faculty, staff, local EMS organizations participating included the Upper Saucon Township Ambulance Corps; Macungie, Ambulance Corps, Emmaus Ambulance Corps, and the St. Luke’s University Health Network Emergency Transport Service.
