ORMAC - Operational Response to Mass Casualties "Sixty-eight percent of state/local respondents believed that there would be insufficient local, state, federal, and private definitive care resources to meet the requirements for definitive care."

"While three years have elapsed since the survey was conducted and there have been some improvements in preparedness and responses, concerns center around the perceived lack of resource capability or lack of ability to get the resources to the MCD scene in time to meet requirements. Such perceptions by experienced professionals warrant further review by those at all levels of government responsible for planning and responding to mass casualty disasters."
Federal Emergency Management Agency, Washington, D.C.

Security Solutions International (SSI), the Miami-based leader in Emergency response and terror response training has launched its most innovative and necessary program yet - ORMAC, Operational Response to Mass Casualties.

"Not only terror incidents but natural disasters can cause mass casualty and we are ill prepared," says Henry Morgenstern, the President of SSI. "Our plans lack coherence as was seen in New Orleans and only the benefit of real-time experience with mass casualties can correct the problem. Until 9/11 and New Orleans, Mass Casualty incidents were of historical interest but this is an area where we must prepare".

"In order to be able to respond in an efficient and resourceful manner to a mass casualty incident it is essential to have our first responders properly trained and prepared. We welcome SSI to the The Jacksonville County Sheriff's Office in an effort to provide their experienced training to our department and other first responders in our neighboring communities" - Spokesperson for Jacksonville Sheriff's Office

Based on Israel's response to Mass Casualty Incidents, and based on the know-how and experience of Professor Dr. Mauricio Lynn, head of trauma surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami Florida, Dr. Lynn was also the medical commander for some of Israel's and the world's worst disasters: The Nairobi embassy bombing; the Turkish Earthquake; and countless mass casualty incidents in Israel. A Colonel (Res) in the Israeli Armies tactical medical units, Dr. Lynn brings a controversial yet vital program to Emergency First Responders, EMT's, Emergency Management Personnel, medical personnel and Fire and Law Enforcement.

This program has been widely acclaimed as "absolutely vital" by the former planning director of Georgia's Emergency Management Agency. Others have said that the program can save lives and avoid the kind of catastrophe we witnessed in New Orleans.

Professor Lynn covers the ten commandments of Mass Casualty incidents, the organization of preparedness for hospitals and First Responders, principles of triage, uses of tourniquets, scoop and run, blast injuries and lessons learned from real world experience. Conventional and non-conventional disasters are covered, as well as detailed views of terror attacks. This is a complete adaptation of the lessons learned from Israel and the world to the US First Responder community.

The next opportunity to attend the two day program is in Jacksonville Florida at the Held at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Jacksonville's Regional Operations Center
November 15th an 16th, 2007
