Kim Martin, nurse at ROJH, is part of the Medical Services team during the mock disaster drill. Martin discussed her thoughts with “RO: In the Know.”

Q: What were your thoughts when you were selected for the Medical Services team?

A: I worked for CareFlite for a few years and in medical services for 30 years, so it wasn’t surprising.

Q: How have you prepared for your role on the team?

A:You have to choose your team. Make sure they have experience, are qualified, that they actually want to, have training, are certified.

Q: What are you nervous about?

A: Mainly communication. Kids should all be accounted for, that names are right.

Q: Why did you think you were selected for your role?

A: Because of my medical experience.

Q: What do you think your greatest strength is as a team member?

A: Years of experience in trauma and emergency.

Q: What’s your opinion about the mock disaster ?

A: It’s a good idea. If this were to happen, we’re going to be the district that’s prepared. Other districts wouldn’t know what to do and wouldn’t have trained for it.

Q: How do you think the drill will benefit students? 

A: Teach them what to do and to take this seriously and know how to act. They will need it one day.
