This is the latest on line simulation developed by the University of Minnesota Center for Public Health Preparedness.
The simulation is intended to help one apply the concepts learned in previous online modules to the "Dirty Bomb! After the Blast" simulation where you use your public health emergency skills to make decisions on behalf of the responders. One must register to start the simulation.
During a political rally for Senator Lund, the unexpected happens - a Dirty Bomb! The community needs you to use your public health emergency skills to make decisions on behalf of the responders during the emergency response. In this online simulation, you will complete three missions.
Mission 1: Dirty Bomb Decontamination The Senator and her traveling party were not injured, but need to be decontaminated. Your task is to setup and conduct a radiological decontamination for this small group after they are whisked away from the site of the explosion.
Mission 2: Mass Fatalities Operational Sites Hours after the explosion, the disaster is declared a mass fatalities incident. Determine where the Mass Fatalities Operational Sites will be located and advise their operation during the response.
Mission 3: Community Assistance Center Two weeks after the disaster, the community is in need of Disaster Mental Health resources. Setup a Community Assistance Center to provide services to the members of the community as they struggle to recover. This simulation is designed to be utilized after you have completed the associated PHET Online Modules: Decontamination, Mass Fatalities, Disaster Mental Health, Personal Protective Equipment, and Special Populations.
Participation in this simulation will provide data for an evaluation of the PHET modules.
