"The [responders] will be testing their communication skills; will be testing whether they can set up a command structure," said Lisa Janak Newman, public information officer for GEMA, according to the news source.

During the exercise, more than 60 volunteers will act as "victims" and wear makeup to give the illusion of having real injuries, said Lisa Janak Newman, public information officer for GEMA.
"The [responders] will be testing their communication skills; will be testing whether they can set up a command structure," Newman said. "They'll need to go in and assess these victims to determine who should be triaged first and taken to the staging area where they'll be treated."
Volunteers posing as victims will pretend to have a range of injuries like severe burns, head trauma and anything that could come from the result of an explosion. The emergency personnel will then go onto the scene and prioritize who needs medical attention first based on the severity of the injury.
Newman said "mass casualty" is typically defined as any number of patients in a short period of time with little or no warning that overwhelm a triage system and receiving hospitals. While 60 may appear to be an arbitrary number, it's enough to overwhelm the response teams to test their capabilities.
Local emergency responders typically conduct mass casualty training exercises to prepare for unexpected events like mass shootings. In the last couple years, high-casualty events have happened in U.S. cities, including the Boston Marathon bombing in April and the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last December.
"The main purpose of the exercise is to test coordination skills and to make sure that the technology everybody has is working; everybody's communicating," Newman said.

GEMA spokeswoman Lisa Janak Newman said the kits include information, lesson plans, ideas and materials designed to help children and their teachers and families prepare for the unexpected.
"Although tailored to complement the third-, fourth- and fifth-grade health or science curriculum, it can be used by any group or organization that works with children," said Newman.
