A mass casualty incident drill simulating a helicopter crash, is held in Jean Marie Vincent 2, a tent city in Port au Prince, Haiti for EMT students through EMPACT Northwest.  The students first reviewed their lessons at Boujet Park where they have translated Haitian Creole for English speaking medical personal for almost two years since the earthquake in 2010.  Volunteer instructors from EMPACT NW applied moulage - make up to look like mock injuries- to residents who volunteered for the training drill. Also present were the United Nations Police who have been stationed there for two weeks. The camp is on the site of Haiti's first Airport, Bowen Field.  Several old derelict airplanes and helicopters litter the area and are being used by people for shelter.  (photo copyright Karen Ducey)
